Remarks

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.
