Property Value

Type Default Description
ShowButtonModeEnum

Default

A value that specifies which column cells display editor buttons.

Available values:

Name Description
Default

If a column’s GridColumn.ShowButtonMode property is set to this value, the column uses the View’s settings. Assigning this value to the View’s ColumnViewOptionsView.ShowButtonMode property is equivalent to assigning the ShowForFocusedCell value.

ShowAlways

Editor buttons are displayed for all cells within the column/view.

ShowForFocusedRow

Buttons are displayed for cells that reside within the focused row.

ShowForFocusedCell

Editor buttons are displayed for the focused cell only.

ShowOnlyInEditor

Buttons are displayed only when a cell editor is active.

Remarks

Use a View’s OptionsView.ShowButtonMode property to specify which cells display in-place editor buttons. The column’s GridColumn.ShowButtonMode property allows you to override this setting for individual columns.

The GridColumn.ShowButtonMode property’s default value is ShowButtonModeEnum.Default, which means that the column uses the View’s ColumnViewOptionsView.ShowButtonMode setting.

The OptionsView.ShowButtonMode and GridColumn.ShowButtonMode properties are only in effect for column editors that have the GridColumn.ColumnEdit.TextEditStyle option set to Standard.
