Grid Designer

The ASPxGridView control includes a design-time Designer tool that allows you to customize grid settings. The Designer provides access to grid properties that are related to the most commonly used features.

The designer’s main benefits are listed below.

  • Quick access to collections

    Quick access to the grid’s internal collection editor (such as columns, edit form layout items, summary items, etc.).

  • Feature-related groups of settings

    All listed settings are organized in logical groups related to the most often used grid features. This lets you find the necessary settings quickly and effectively.

  • Integrated descriptions

    Interactive feature descriptions help familiarize you with core concepts. These descriptions include context links to important properties and related collections.
