C1FlexGrid: Data binding with dynamic # of columns

    is it possible to data bind to a data source with an at compile time unknown number of columns?
    My data source results from a pivot query so the number of columns depends on the data. I have a collection [rows] of collections [columns] of values and want to use pure MVVM without code-behind.
    I saw that the columns can be defined in XAML and I think that can be done in code, too. But I can't do that in a ViewModel as I have no reference to the grid.
    Can the Columns collection be bound, too? Didn't find a way.

    Hello Thomas,

    You can bind the Columns of C1FlexGrid through code using the MVVM design pattern. For this, you need a reference of your C1FlexGrid into a ViewModel.
    Please find the attached sample implementing your scenario and let me know if I missed something.

    Hope it helps.
