Property Value

Type Description

true, to display the column within a View; otherwise, false.


To hide the column, set its Visible property to false. If a column’s ColumnBase.ShowInColumnChooser option is enabled, its header (when the column is hidden) is displayed within the Column Chooser.

To show a hidden column, set its Visible property to true. To show it at a specified position among visible columns, use its BaseColumn.VisibleIndex property.

Even if columns are hidden from the GridControl, you can sort and group values by them.
