Bind a Column to Data

  1. Add the <DxDataGridComboBoxColumn/> tag to a Data Grid component’s markup.
  2. Use one of the following properties to bind the column to data:

    • Data - to a strongly typed collection.
    • DataAsync - to a strongly typed collection that is loaded asynchronously (for instance, from an HTTP request).
    • CustomData - to a strongly typed collection that is stored on a remote service and is loaded through a Web API.

      If you bind the ComboBox column to a data collection that stores custom objects (IEnumerable<CustomType>), override the object’s Equals method.

  3. Use the Field property to assign a data source field to the column.

    You can also use the TextFieldName and ValueFieldName properties to specify data source fields that stores text and values for column items.

@if (DataSource == null) {
} else {
<DxDataGrid Data="@DataSource">
    <DxDataGridComboBoxColumn Field="@nameof(WeatherForecast.CloudCover)"
                              Data="@CloudCover" />

@code {
    IEnumerable<WeatherForecast> DataSource;
    public class WeatherForecast {
        // ...
        public string CloudCover { get; set; }
    public string[] CloudCover = new[] {
        "Sunny", "Partly cloudy", "Cloudy", "Storm"

    protected override void OnInitialized() {
        DataSource = GetForecast();

    public IEnumerable<WeatherForecast> GetForecast() {
        var rng = new Random();
        DateTime startDate = DateTime.Now;
        for (var i = 1; i < 15; i++) {
            yield return new WeatherForecast { Date = startDate.AddDays(i), 
                                               TemperatureC = rng.Next(-15, 20),
                                               CloudCover = CloudCover[rng.Next(0, CloudCover.Length)] };

    public override bool Equals(object obj) {
        if (obj is WeatherForecast)
            return this.ID == ((WeatherForecast)obj).ID;
        return base.Equals(obj);

AllowSort Specifies if users can sort data by the column’s values.
FilteringMode Specifies how the column’s data is filtered.
GroupIndex Specifies the column’s index among group columns. If the property is set to -1, the grid data is not grouped by this column.
