Property Value

Type Description

true, to allow end-users to drag and drop sorted and grouped data; otherwise, false.


By default, the sorted or grouped GridControl doesn’t allow dropping records at some positions, which are defined by the value of a column by which the control is sorted (grouped). Enabling the AllowSortedDataDragDrop option allows the GridControl to modify record data in such columns to insert the dropped record at the required position.


Drag-and-drop operations do not work if sorted columns are read-only.

The following image shows the GridControl sorted by the Job Title column. A drag-and-drop operation changes the Job Title value of a dropped record:


You can set the AllowSortedDataDragDrop property to true to allow moving records from one group to another:
