Data-Toggle Attribute

  • 3 minutes to read

The DevExpress Bootstrap Controls Suite uses the data-toggle attribute to assign actions to DOM elements displayed within complex controls declaratively. In your applications, you can use the data-toggle attribute to assign one of the predefined actions to a control displayed within a template.

This document provides information on possible values of the data-toggle attribute used by editors displayed within various visual elements of the Grid View control. All described values are grouped by a Grid View control's visual element in which they have an effect.

This example demonstrates how to use the data-toggle attribute to declaratively assign actions to controls displayed within the Grid View's templates.

<dx:BootstrapGridView runat="server" KeyFieldName="CustomerID" DataSourceID="DataSource3">
        <dx:BootstrapGridViewDataColumn FieldName="CompanyName">
                <%# Eval("CompanyName") %>
                <button type="button" class="btn btn-link" data-toggle="gridview-datarow-edit">
                    <span class="fa fa-pencil"></span>
                <button type="button" class="btn btn-link" data-toggle="gridview-datarow-delete">
                    <span class="fa fa-trash"></span>
    <Settings ShowTitlePanel="true" />
            <button type="button" class="btn btn-link" data-toggle="gridview-newrow">
                <span class="fa fa-plus"></span>
