Binding GridView to struct properties

Back to Forum: Tech Off

    I have an object with several properties that I want to bind to a Grid View.  Binding to simple datatypes such as string, int, and bool work quite well.

    However, one of the properties of my object is a struct.  I would like to be able to bind to properties of the struct.

    For example, if I have an object of type CustomType with the following properties:

    public string Name {
            get { return _name; }
            set { _name = value; }

    public int Age {
            get { return _age; }
            set { _age= value; }

    public CustomStruct Stats {
        get { return _stats;}
        set { _stats = value;}

    where CustomStruct is

        public struct CustomStruct
            private int hours;
            public int Hours
                get { return hours; }
                set { hours= value; }

            private int days;
            public int Days
                get { return days; }
                set { hours= days; }

    So I have these lines under <Columns>

    <asp:BoundField DataField="Age" HeaderText="Age"/>
    <asp:BoundField DataField="Name" HeaderText="Name"/>

    How can I accomplish something equivalent to the following?

    <asp:BoundField DataField="Stats.Days" HeaderText="Days"/>
