Public Overridable Property FocusedColumn As GridColumn

Property Value

Type Description
GridColumn

A GridColumn object or descendant representing the currently focused column/card field.

Remarks

Use the FocusedColumn property to access the currently focused column/card field , or to set focus to a specific column/card field. When the FocusedColumn property's value is changed, the ColumnView.FocusedColumnChanged event is raised.

To access the focused row/card, use the ColumnView.FocusedRowHandle property.

After moving focus between cards in LayoutViews and CardViews via the FocusedRowHandle inherited property, the ColumnView.FocusedColumn property is automatically set to null. In this instance, you may want to manually move focus to a specific card field via the FocusedColumn property after changing the FocusedRowHandle.

For more information, see the Columns topic.

NOTE

Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the FocusedColumn member must not be invoked for these Views. The FocusedColumn member can only be used with real Views that are displayed within the Grid Control. The real Views with which an end-user interacts at runtime can be accessed using the following methods.

Examples

The example shows how to move focus to a specific column at runtime.

    advBandedGridView1.FocusedColumn = advBandedGridView1.Columns["Country"];
