The GridView is the default Data Grid View that displays data in a traditional tabular format. The View renders data source records as rows, and data source fields as columns. Data values are displayed in individual cells.
The documents below contain in-depth information on the main elements of this tabular layout.
Since Data Grid Views derive from base BaseView and ColumnView classes, these Views share many features and API. To avoid duplication, these cornerstone concepts are explained for the main Data Grid View (GridView) only, although you can employ the same API in other Views. For this reason, we strongly recommend that you read this section first before trying other Views.
All features below are fully supported in the Grid View unless stated otherwise. Other Views may have limited support for certain features (for example, WinExplorerView does not supply elements for filtering data at runtime).
- Data Editing and Validation
- Filter and Search
- Row Preview Sections
- Appearance and Conditional Formatting
