Property Value

Type Description

true to allow an end-user to move columns; otherwise, false.


If the AllowColumnMoving property is set to true, users can do the following:

Individual columns provide the BaseColumn.AllowMoving property, that allows the default behavior specified by the view to be overridden. For instance, if the AllowColumnMoving property is set to true, you can set an individual column’s BaseColumn.AllowMoving property to ‘False’. As a result, an end-user can move all columns displayed within the view, except this one particular column.
