ASPxDataView.Items Property

Provides access to the ASPxDataView‘s data items collection.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v21.1.dll

Declaration

public DataViewItemCollection Items { get; }

Property Value

Type Description
DataViewItemCollection

A DataViewItemCollection object which is a data items collection.

Remarks

If the ASPxDataView control is bound to the data source, the Items collection contains only the currently visible data items. If the data items are added manually, the Items collection stores all of them. In this case, the currently visible items can be accessed with the ASPxDataView.VisibleItems property.

Example

This example demonstrates how to implement a kind of an image gallery with an image preview.Image thumbnails are displayed by ASPxDataView that is used in Flow layout mode. In this mode, image thumbnails flow one after another, to fill the available page area within the browser window in the best possible way. When hovering a thumbnail, ASPxPopupControl is invoked to display a large (zoomed) image. During zoomed image loading, ASPxPopupControl displays a thumbnail image enlarged to the zoomed image size.The specificity of this example is that image previews are displayed with the help of a single ASPxPopupControl that is dynamically linked to multiple invoker elements via client code. The client SetPopupElementID method is used to associate ASPxPopupControl with multiple instances of a thumbnail image element placed within ASPxDataView's ItemTemplate.From this example, you can also learn how to dynamically generate two images - thumbnail and preview - from an original image and how to apply a watermark to a large preview image.
