RadGridView: missing DataSource property for GridViewComboBoxColumn in Property Builder

I'm just starting with RadGridView and trying to figure out how to create a combobox column inside my RadGridView.  I've added a column that is of type GridViewComboBoxColumn.  I've created a BindingSource that Contains the values for the combobox.  I can't figure out how to set the datasource property of the Column to use that BindingSource.  Google search says to set the datasource property but when I'm going through the "Open Properties Builder"  and I select my combobox column I don't see that property listed under advanced for the column.

Thanks

Hello, Lee,     

Indeed, the illustrated missing DataSource property in the Property Builder was confirmed in my previous reply as an issue and the ticket was converted to a public feedback item on your behalf. 

Feel free to use one of the suggested workarounds:
- setup the column via code by following the demonstrated approach in the help article: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/columns/column-types/gridviewcomboboxcolumn   
- set the DataSource via the Columns collection in the smart tag.

Should you have further questions please let me know.

So I believe I'm doing it correctly then. Look at the screen shot below does not have a DataSource Property under Advance in the Data section the way your screen shot is showing.  I just installed Telerk UI for WinForms so I have the latest version 2019.3.1022.20  I'm using VS2012.   I'm working on upgrading an existing app that was written using grids from another vendor.  So I wanted to pull those out and use Telerik because the original vendor is no longer in business and their grid isn't supported under anything after VS2013.   Once I get the old grids out I want to move it to VS2017.  But I'm running into these issues.

Hello, Lee,     

Following the provided information, I was able to observe the missing DataSource property for the GridViewComboBoxColumn in the Property Builder. The attached gif file illustrates the behavior on my end with the provided sample project.

I have logged it in our feedback portal by making this thread public. You can track its progress, subscribe for status changes and add your comments on the following link - feedback item.

 

I have also updated your Telerik points.

I would recommend you to have a look at the following help article demonstrating how to setup properly a GridViewComboBoxColumn: https://docs.telerik.com/devtools/winforms/controls/gridview/columns/column-types/gridviewcomboboxcolumn 

An alternative solution is to set the DataSource via the Columns collection in the smart tag:

I hope this information helps. If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate to contact me.
