public GridControlViewCollection Views { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A GridControlViewCollection object containing Views that are currently displayed by the grid control.


The Views collection always contains the View specified by the GridControl.MainView property as its first element. Detail clones are added to the collection when they become visible (when created). When a master row is collapsed, all details created for it are destroyed. Thus, the corresponding elements are removed from the collection.

When an element is added to the Views collection, the GridControl.ViewRegistered event is raised. Removing an element from the collection raises the GridControl.ViewRemoved event. Note that you cannot add or remove Views manually. The collection returned by the Views property is read-only.


Pattern Views residing within the GridControl.LevelTree tree are not included into the Views collection. These Views can be accessed via the GridControl.ViewCollection collection.

Please refer to the Master-Detail Relationships topic for additional information.
