Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

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


public event RoutedEventHandler AutoGeneratedColumns
Public Event AutoGeneratedColumns As RoutedEventHandler

Event Data

The AutoGeneratedColumns event's data class is RoutedEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates the present state of the event handling for a routed event as it travels the route.
OriginalSource Gets the original reporting source as determined by pure hit testing, before any possible Source adjustment by a parent class.
RoutedEvent Gets or sets the RoutedEvent associated with this RoutedEventArgs instance.
Source Gets or sets a reference to the object that raised the event.


If the grid's DataControlBase.AutoGenerateColumns option is enabled, binding the grid to a data source automatically generates columns for all data source properties. After all columns have been created and added to the GridControl.Columns collection, the grid fires the AutoGeneratedColumns event. Handle this event to specify column settings (e.g., assign column editors, hide individual columns, etc.).

The AutoGeneratedColumns event is not raised if the grid columns are explicitly specified (for instance, in the XAML file) and the DataControlBase.AutoGenerateColumns property is set to AutoGenerateColumnsMode.KeepOld, or if the DataControlBase.AutoGenerateColumns property is set to AutoGenerateColumnsMode.None.
