Data Rows

  • 2 minutes to read

Rows are used to display and edit data. ASPxVerticalGrid supports both bound and unbound rows.

  • Bound rows represent fields in the ASPxVerticalGrid‘s data source. Their VerticalGridDataRow.FieldName properties refer to valid fields in a data source.
  • Unbound rows are not bound to any field in a data source. These rows must be populated manually. For information, see Unbound Rows.


There are fifteen types of server data rows.

Since different types of rows present different types of data, they provide their own editors. For example, Boolean values are edited using a check box editor, while DateTime values are edited using a DateTime editor. To access and customize the row editor’s settings, use the VerticalGridEditDataRow.PropertiesEdit property.

Rows provide a set of Boolean properties that enable you to specify which elements of a row’s functionality (sorting, filtering, etc.) are available to end-users. These options can be accessed using the ASPxVerticalGrid.Settings property.

To make a row read-only, set its VerticalGridDataRow.ReadOnly property to true.


The row’s visibility is specified by its WebColumnBase.Visible property. Its position among other visible rows is specified by its WebColumnBase.VisibleIndex property.
