Property Value

Type Description

The source from which the grid generates bands.


You can define bands in a ViewModel and display them in the GridControl. To do this, follow the steps below:

  1. Create a collection of grid bands in a ViewModel and specify a data template that generates bands.

  2. Assign the band collection to the BandsSource property and the band template to the DataControlBase.BandGeneratorTemplate property:

    <dxg:GridControl ...
                     BandsSource="{Binding Bands}" 
                     BandGeneratorTemplate="{StaticResource MultiColumnBandTemplate}"/>


You cannot specify the BandsSource and DataControlBase.ColumnsSource properties simultaneously.
