Type Description

Available values:

Name Description

Corresponds to a Boolean value of true.


Corresponds to a Boolean value of false.


The value is determined by a control’s current setting. The default value is automatically set for a control if an end-user doesn’t specify a value.


End-users are allowed to filter data if the grid’s DataControlBase.AllowColumnFiltering property is set to true. Individual columns provide the AllowColumnFiltering property, allowing the default behavior specified by the view to be overridden. Setting this property to ‘True’ or ‘False’ overrides the default behavior. This can be useful when it is required to prevent an end-user from invoking the filter dropdown of individual columns.

If the AllowColumnFiltering property is set to ‘Default’, the capability to filter data is controlled by the grid’s DataControlBase.AllowColumnFiltering property. In this instance, to obtain whether an end-user can filter data by the current column, use the ColumnBase.ActualAllowColumnFiltering property.
