How can i Create a wpf Datagrid view with dynamically generating combobox columns

How can i Create a Datagrid view with dynamically generating combobox (through c#) columns and how can i bind the data to those dynamically generated columns (through MVVM). i want to generate different collection of data to each combobox inside the automatically generated column.

Thanks in advance.

Not sure why you want to add the combobox via c#. Why not use a Template Column where you take advantage of MVVM as you should do. View is defined in XAML and content is bound via ViewModel data.

<DataGridTemplateColumn Header="ColumnHeader">
                 <local:CostumControlWithCombobox Text="{Binding Path=YourListToPickFrom}"/>

If the pick lists should be possibly different for certain row. You need a rule or a parameter how to bind the matching list. Note that it is also possible to add controls with mvvm behavior in a TemplateColumn (just for the sake of demonstration) but you could also bind to a combobox list itself.

If you still prefer to build this up via C# code Check out the Class documentation of DataGridTemplateColumn they can also be accessed via code. https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/system.windows.controls.datagridtemplatecolumn(v=vs.110).aspx
