DataControlBase.AllowInfiniteGridSize Field

Gets or sets whether the infinite GridControl’s height is allowed. If true, the InfiniteGridSizeException is not raised.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v21.2.Core.dll


public static bool AllowInfiniteGridSize

Field Value



The default is false. In this case, if the GridControl’s height measures infinite, (for example, the grid is placed within a vertically oriented stack panel), the InfiniteGridSizeException is thrown.

To avoid the exception:

  • Use a container that limits the GridControl’s size, or
  • Set the MaxHeight property to a certain value in your GridControl, or
  • Set AllowInfiniteGridSize to true. In this case, the GridControl immediately generates rows for all records in a data source. Note this may cause performance issues if the data source contains a lot of records.
