The GridView is the default Data Grid View that displays data in a traditional tabular format. Each data source record is represented as a row, and all data source data fields have related columns. Data portions are stored within individual cells.
The documents below provide in-depth information on the main elements of this tabular layout.
Data Grid Views derive from base BaseView and ColumnView classes and thus, 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 can have limited support of certain features (e.g., WinExplorerView does not provide elements for filtering data at runtime).
- Data Editing and Validation
- Filter and Search
- Row Preview Sections
- Appearance and Conditional Formatting
