The ASPxGridView allows you to access a column by its Index, Name, Caption, or FieldName property value. To do this, pass the column’s index, name, caption, or name of the bound data source field to a Item property overload.
The Item[String] property searches for a column in the following order:
- A column with the specified name
- A column with the specified data source field
- A column with the specified caption
Below is an example of how to use different column characteristics to access columns.
// Accesses the column whose Name property is set to 'MyColumn1'. GridViewColumn colMyColumn = ASPxGridView1.Columns["MyColumn1"]; // Accesses the column whose FieldName property is set to 'Department'. GridViewColumn colDepartment = ASPxGridView1.Columns["Department"]; // Accesses the column whose Caption property is set to 'Primary Phone'. GridViewColumn colPhone = ASPxGridView1.Columns["Primary Phone"]; // Accesses the column whose Index property is set to '0'. GridViewColumn colFirstColumn = ASPxGridView1.Columns;
