Property Value

Type Description

A DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.GridRuntimeStringCollection object that contains resource strings that can be localized at runtime.


Individual default strings displayed within the grid (e.g. group panel text, the column chooser’s caption, etc.) can be changed at runtime. To translate individual resource strings at runtime, create a DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.RuntimeStringIdInfo object with the specified Id and Value properties, and add it to the View’s RuntimeLocalizationStrings collection. The Id property identifies the required resource string. The Value property specifies a new value for it.


This example shows how to change the default string displayed in the Group Panel at runtime.

View Example: Localize Individual Strings at Runtime

<dxg:GridControl x:Name="grid" AutoGenerateColumns="AddNew">
        <dxg:TableView x:Name="view" AutoWidth="True"/>
<StackPanel Grid.Row="1" Orientation="Horizontal">
    <TextBox x:Name="textBox" Width="200" KeyDown="textBox_KeyDown" Margin="3,3,3,3"/>
    <Button Content="Apply" Click="button_Click" Margin="0,3,0,3"/>
void LocalizeGroupPanelText() {
    var NewText = textBox.Text;
    var localization = new GridRuntimeStringCollection();
    localization.Add(new RuntimeStringIdInfo(GridControlRuntimeStringId.GridGroupPanelText, NewText));
    view.RuntimeLocalizationStrings = localization;
void button_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e) {

void textBox_KeyDown(object sender, System.Windows.Input.KeyEventArgs e) {
    if (e.Key == System.Windows.Input.Key.Enter) {
