public static bool AllowGlyphRunRenderingInInplaceEditors { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean true

true to use the GlyphRun engine; otherwise, false.


The GridControl in Optimized Mode uses the GlyphRun engine to render text in cell editors. This improves the initial loading time and scrolling performance up to 1.5 times on a FullHD screen. While the new text rendering engine is thoroughly tested and supports all known text elements and fonts, you may still see slight differences compared to how text was drawn previously. If you want to roll back to the old rendering engine, set the static AllowGlyphRunRenderingInInplaceEditors property to false before the grid is loaded.
