This property is in effect only at design time and is hidden from IntelliSense.

  • When this property is set to false, the CsvExportOptions.Separator property is disabled in the Property Grid, which indicates its actual value (by adding the “Using System Separator“ note to it).


  • When this property is set to true, the CsvExportOptions.Separator property’s value becomes empty and editable and the new custom value becomes serializable.


Use the CsvExportOptions.GetActualSeparator property to find out which separator is applied on export to CSV.
