Unbound columns are not bound to any field in a data source. These columns must be populated manually. For information, see the Unbound Columns topic.
There are fifteen types of data columns. You can define the column type using the MVCxGridViewColumn.ColumnType property, which receives one of the MVCxGridViewColumnType enumeration values. The table below lists the GridView column types, and the default editors used to edit and display values in these column types.
Since different types of data columns 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 column editor's settings, use the GridViewEditDataColumn.PropertiesEdit (via MVCxGridViewColumn.PropertiesEdit) property.
Data columns provide a set of Boolean properties that enable you to specify which elements of a column's functionality (sorting, grouping, etc.) are available to end-users. These options can be accessed via the GridViewDataColumn.Settings (via MVCxGridViewColumn.Settings) property.
