Namespace: DevExpress.Web.Mvc

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.Mvc5.v24.1.dll


public AutoBoolean EnablePagingGestures { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

True, if page switching by gestures is always allowed; False, if it is always prohibited; Auto - if it is allowed for touch devices only.

Available values:

Name Description

The value is determined automatically, based on the type of the end-user’s device: touch or non-touch.


Corresponds to a Boolean value of true.


Corresponds to a Boolean value of false.


Use the EnablePagingGestures property to control the user capability to switch between pages with a swipe gesture. By default, this feature is enabled for touch devices only.



If paging gestures are enabled (the EnablePagingGestures property is set to True, or it is set to Auto and a touch device is used), pages change with the slide animation effect irrespective of the GridSettingsBase.EnablePagingCallbackAnimation property value.


Enabling horizontal scrollbars (via the ASPxGridSettings.HorizontalScrollBarMode option) on an ASPxGridView control disables the paging gesture functionality, so the EnablePagingGestures property is not in effect.
