Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v24.1.Core.dll


public DataTemplateSelector BandGeneratorTemplateSelector { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

The band template selector.


The GridControl and its bands can be bound to a collection of objects containing band settings, described in a Model or ViewModel. The GridControl generates bands based on band templates. Using a single template, you can create an unlimited number of bands in an unlimited number of grid controls.

To choose the required band template based on the band’s settings, use the Data Template Selector assigned to the BandGeneratorTemplateSelector property.

using System.Windows;
using System.Windows.Controls;
using Model;

namespace View {
    public class BandTemplateSelector : DataTemplateSelector {
        public override DataTemplate SelectTemplate(object item, DependencyObject container) {
            Band band = (Band)item;
            if(band.ChildColumns.Count == 1) {
                return (DataTemplate)((FrameworkElement)container).FindResource("SingleColumnBandTemplate");
            return (DataTemplate)((FrameworkElement)container).FindResource("MultiColumnBandTemplate");

If all grid bands can be described using a single template, you have no need to create a band template selector. Instead, assign this template to the band’s BandBase.BandGeneratorTemplate property.
