Name Description Return Value

The value is false.

End-users are allowed to reorder columns and move them to the Group Panel via drag-and-drop, if the view’s DataViewBase.AllowColumnMoving property is set to true. Individual columns provide the AllowMoving property, allowing the default behavior specified by the view, to be overridden. Setting the AllowMoving property to ‘True’ or ‘False’ overrides the default behavior. This can be useful when it is required to prevent individual columns from being moved by an end-user.

If the columns AllowMoving property is set to ‘Default’, the ability to move it via drag-and-drop is controlled by the view’s DataViewBase.AllowColumnMoving property. In this instance, to determine whether an end-user can actually move this column, use the BaseColumn.ActualAllowMoving property.
