TableView.IsDetailButtonVisibleBinding Property

Gets or sets the binding that determines which rows display detail expand buttons.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v21.1.dll


public BindingBase IsDetailButtonVisibleBinding { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


A BindingBase object specifying which rows display detail expand buttons.


Use this property if you want to selectively display detail expand buttons. By default, the DataContext for this binding is the master row, so you can make the necessary binding adjustments and/or specify a value converter and return whether a given row should display its button.

If a row’s detail expand button is hidden, end-users won’t be able to expand it via keyboard shortcuts too.


This sample shows how to use the TableView.IsDetailButtonVisibleBinding property to selectively hide detail expand buttons. The specified Binding transmits row field values to a value converter. The value converter then specifies if the row containing that value should display the detail expand button.
