BandedGridView.Assign(BaseView, Boolean) Method

Copies properties and, optionally, event handlers from the View passed as a parameter.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.BandedGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v20.1.dll


public override void Assign(
    BaseView v,
    bool copyEvents
Public Overrides Sub Assign(
    v As BaseView,
    copyEvents As Boolean


Name Type Description
v BaseView

A BaseView descendant representing a View whose properties and event handlers are copied. If null (Nothing in Visual Basic), the method does nothing.

copyEvents Boolean

true if event handlers should be copied; otherwise, false.


The method supports the grid control's infrastructure and is not intended to be used in applications.

This method calls the base GridView.Assign method and then copies the properties and event handlers specific to the BandedGridView class. Note that the current View's column collection is cleared before copying columns.


If you copy settings to a grid control's View before this grid's data source is initialized, certain column settings (e.g., GridColumn.UnboundExpression of unbound columns) do not automatically take effect. You can use one of following solutions to resolve the issue:

  • Set the target grid's data source after the Assign method is called.
  • Call the target View's View.DataController.RePopulateColumns method after the Assign method is called.
