Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v19.2.dll


public virtual bool AutoFillDown { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


true, if a band header is automatically stretched to fill the empty space below it; otherwise, false.


Banded and Advanced Banded Grid Views allow you to change the band header height and arrange band headers in several rows via the GridBand.RowCount property The GridBand.AutoFillDown property specifies whether or not a header should be automatically stretched vertically if there is empty space below it. This has been provided because users can sometimes rearrange bands leaving an empty space within a band panel. Setting the GridBand.AutoFillDown property to true (the default) avoids this.
