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 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 property.
