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 reorder columns or move them to the Group Panel via drag-and-drop, if the grid’s DataControlBase.AllowColumnMoving property is set to true. Individual columns provide the AllowMoving property, allowing the default behavior specified by the grid to be overridden. Setting the AllowMoving property to ‘True’ or ‘False’ overrides the default behavior. This can be useful when it is required to prevent individual columns from being moved by an end-user.

If the columns AllowMoving property is set to ‘Default’, the capability to move it via drag-and-drop is controlled by the grid’s DataControlBase.AllowColumnMoving property. In this instance, to determine whether an end-user can actually move this column, use the ColumnBase.ActualAllowMoving property.
