    Has anybody knows if there is some sort of an extended third-party data bound control for Sitefinity that allows the front end data binding, a kind of like drag and drop style? In other words, I am looking for a control that allows the user to set up data source for the grid-like Sitefinity control.

    Hi Lena,

    You could create a control that has predefined options( you can use enum or if you have ControlDesigner each control you would like) that binds the control to specific datasources. This will allow to a user to set the control datasource. Another option is using some logical combinations of properties to create a custom datasource, but again it would be better if you use predefined options that can be selected.

    Best wishes,
