Object Type Path to AllowChangeBandParent


As described in the Banded Grid Views topic, banded Views allow you to arrange bands in a hierarchical structure. This implies that bands can own other bands (serve as their parents). By default, when such a bands layout is used, end-users can only re-order bands within their parent bands. You can set the AllowChangeBandParent property to true to change this behavior so that end-users can change band positions without any restrictions.

End-users can re-order bands by dragging their headers. The band’s OptionsBand.AllowMove option must be enabled to allow this.

Note: you can reorder bands in code without any restrictions regardless of the AllowChangeBandParent option.
