Object Type Path to AlwaysShowCheckboxesInCheckColumns


By default, when batch editing is enabled, Check Column cells present their values differently, depending on whether or not they are being edited.

  • In Browse mode, column cells display an icon for all true values.
  • In Edit mode, column cells display Check Box editors (rendered as native checkboxes).


The AlwaysShowCheckboxesInCheckColumns property allows you to specify that checkboxes should always be displayed, regardless of the active mode.



Note that when a cell displays a checkbox in the browse mode, clicking a check box automatically triggers cell editing and changes the cell value. The GridBatchEditSettings.StartEditAction property value is ignored in this case.
