Property Value

Type Description

true to automatically create columns for all fields in a data source if the grid doesn't contain any columns; otherwise, false.


If the AutoPopulateColumns property is set to true and the grid's GridControl.Columns collection is empty, the DataControlBase.PopulateColumns method is automatically called after a grid has been bound to a data source. The DataControlBase.PopulateColumns method creates columns for all fields in a data source, and adds them to the GridControl.Columns collection.

To prevent grid columns from being automatically created, set the AutoPopulateColumns property to false.
