Property Value

Type Description

A GridViewColumn object that represents a column with the specified name, field name or caption. null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the column isn't found.


The Item property allows you to obtain a column by specifying its name, field name or caption. If the column's Name property matches the ID_FieldName_Caption parameter, it is returned by the Item property.

If the column isn't found, a search is performed for a data column whose GridViewDataColumn.FieldName property matched the search parameter. Since multiple columns can be bound to the same data source field, the first found column is returned.

Finally, if the column isn't found, the Item property returns the first found column whose Caption property matches the search parameter. Otherwise, the Item property returns null.
