public DataTemplate ColumnGeneratorTemplate { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

The column template.


The DevExpress WPF GridControl supports column binding. The grid can be bound to a collection of objects containing column settings, described in a Model or ViewModel. The GridControl generates columns based on column templates. Using a single template, you can create an unlimited number of columns in an unlimited number of grid controls.

To choose the required template based on the column’s type, use the Template Selector assigned to the DataControlBase.ColumnGeneratorTemplateSelector property. If all grid columns can be described using a single template, you have no need to create a column template selector. Instead, assign this template to the grid’s ColumnGeneratorTemplate property.
