GridControl.AllowCollectionView Property

Gets or sets whether to allow processing collection views. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public bool AllowCollectionView { get; set; }
Public Property AllowCollectionView As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true to allow processing collection views; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The GridControl supports ICollectionView binding. To bind the GridControl to the ICollectionView, assign the source collection to the grid's DataControlBase.ItemsSource property and enable the DataViewBase.IsSynchronizedWithCurrentItem option. The grid automatically synchronizes its grouping, sorting, current item, and can directly change the underlying collection.

When the GridControl is bound to a collection view, the grid functions in the Server Mode. To learn about the Server Mode limitations, refer to the following topic: Server Mode Limitations.

When working with ICollectionView sources, the GridControl delegates all data management operations (sorting, filtering, grouping) to ICollectionView, which imposes some limitations on the GridControl's features.

Set the AllowCollectionView property to false to let the GridControl perform all data management operations.
