ColumnChooserControl Class

The legacy Column Chooser control allows users to show and hide the GridControl's columns at runtime.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public class ColumnChooserControl :
    GridColumnChooserControlBase
Public Class ColumnChooserControl
    Inherits GridColumnChooserControlBase

Remarks

The GridControl displays the Column Chooser in a separate window. To add the Column Chooser to the same window as the GridControl, create a ColumnChooserControl object. This object is the Column Chooser whose DataViewBase.ColumnChooserColumnDisplayMode property is set to ShowHiddenColumnsOnly:

  1. Users can open the Column Chooser window from a column header's context menu. To prevent this, remove the Show Column Chooser button from the menu:

    <Window
    xmlns:dxb="http://schemas.devexpress.com/winfx/2008/xaml/bars"
    ...>
    
    <dxg:TableView x:Name="TableView" >
        <dxg:TableView.ColumnMenuCustomizations>
            <dxb:RemoveAction ElementName="{x:Static dxg:DefaultColumnMenuItemNames.ColumnChooser}"/>
        </dxg:TableView.ColumnMenuCustomizations>
    </dxg:TableView>
    
  2. Add a Column Chooser to the window:

    <dxg:ColumnChooserControl x:Name="PART_ColumnChooserControl"
                              Owner="{Binding ElementName=TableView}"
                              Columns="{Binding Path=Owner.ColumnChooserColumns, RelativeSource={RelativeSource Self}}"
                              DragText="Drag a column here to customize layout"/>
