Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v22.2.Core.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Grid.Core


public bool UseLegacyColumnVisibleIndexes { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true, to use legacy visible indexes; otherwise, false.


Starting with v17.2, the BaseColumn.VisibleIndex property value of each column is saved for invisible columns. This allows the GridControl to do the following:

  • Return the ungrouped column to its previous visible position (the position it occupied before grouping);
  • Return the hidden column to its previous position (when setting its Visible property to true).

Set the UseLegacyColumnVisibleIndexes property to true to return to the previous visible index behavior.
