Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if the Find Panel is always visible; otherwise, false.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to AlwaysVisible
.OptionsFind .AlwaysVisible


Set the AlwaysVisible property to true, to prevent the Find Panel from being hidden by an end-user.

gridView1.OptionsFind.AlwaysVisible = true;

You can also prevent the Find Panel from being hidden by setting the ColumnViewOptionsFind.ShowCloseButton property to false.

Note that if the AlwaysVisible property is set to true, the close (‘x’) button is hidden, even if the ColumnViewOptionsFind.ShowCloseButton property is set to true.

If the Find Panel is hidden and the ColumnViewOptionsFind.AllowFindPanel property is enabled, an end-user can invoke the Find Panel by pressing CTRL+F. In code, the Find Panel can also be displayed via the ColumnView.ShowFindPanel method.
