DataSourceOptionsBase.SkipHiddenColumns Property

Gets or sets whether to include hidden columns into the binding range.

Namespace: DevExpress.Spreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.Spreadsheet.v19.1.Core.dll


public bool SkipHiddenColumns { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true, to skip hidden columns; otherwise, false. Default is false.


The SkipHiddenColumns and DataSourceOptionsBase.SkipHiddenRows properties operate differently depending on the data source type you use:

  • External Data Source

    These properties specify whether data should be inserted into hidden rows and columns. Set these properties to true to skip hidden rows and columns in a target cell range when data is retrieved from a data source. Data is inserted into the next visible row or column.

  • Cell Range as a Data Source

    These properties specify whether to take hidden columns and rows into account when data is extracted from a cell range. If the SkipHiddenColumns and DataSourceOptionsBase.SkipHiddenRows options are true, hidden columns and rows within a source range are skipped when a data source is created. The resulting data source contains only values originating from visible columns and rows. The unhide operation does not add columns and rows to the data source.
