Preview Section

Preview sections are non-editable regions in data rows that allow large memo fields to be displayed across all View columns, thus the preview section’s width is equal to the total column width. A preview is not displayed for the new item row and auto filter row.




If the Row Auto-Height or Preview Sections feature is enabled, pixel-based vertical row scrolling is not in effect. See GridOptionsBehavior.AllowPixelScrolling to learn more.
