How do I create this kind of data Grid dynamically?
My biggest challenge is interacting with Column Template in individual cell level.
and its subclasses List Box and List View exacerbate performance problems because these controls are highly dynamic (resolution happens “late”), involve WPF collections (which are slow), and have difficult and unpredictable lifetimes for their child controls.
Scrollbar performance is often a big problem in larger WPF apps because of problems that seem trivial for small collections, but suddenly blow up with larger data sets.
The concept of data binding is explained in detail in another part of this tutorial, but generally speaking it's about separating data from layout.
So, let's try binding some data to a List View: We populate a list of our own User objects, each user having a name and an age.
This is a useful feature to keep a referencing column like an ID or a name always visible to keep your orientation while scrolling.
There is no shortage of information out there on how to speed up the performance of WPF applications, but too often the focus is on the weird stuff instead of the simpler issues.
Later, you wish you were more prepared for localization.
Ok, really what you are thinking is: Well, what if I told you that using is extremely easy? Right now this only needs to display a license agreement in English, but maybe someday, this will need to display a license agreement in any language.
I’m not going to talk about things like writing to to optimize drawing—it’s a topic covered to death elsewhere.
Instead, this is meant to be a slightly more practical guide to squeezing performance out of WPF in ways that are probably more likely affecting you.
