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 resize columns if the grid’s GridControl.AllowResizing property is set to true. Individual columns provide the AllowResizing property, allowing the default behavior specified by the grid, 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 resizing individual columns.

If the AllowResizing property is set to ‘Default’, the ability to resize columns is controlled by the grid’s GridControl.AllowResizing property. In this instance, to obtain whether an end-user can resize a column, use the ColumnBase.ActualAllowResizing property.
