Property Value

Type Description

true, to automatically create columns for all fields in a data source; otherwise, false.


If the AutoGenerateColumns property is set to true, the DataControlBase.PopulateColumns method is automatically called after a grid has been bound to a data source. The DataControlBase.PopulateColumns method creates columns for all fields in a data source and adds them to the GridControl.Columns collection.

To prevent grid columns from being created automatically, set the AutoGenerateColumns property to false.
