public int RowHandle { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

An integer value representing the row handle.


When handling the GridView.CustomDrawRowPreview event, the RowHandle property returns the data row handle. This handle identifies the row whose preview section is being painted. When handling either the GridView.CustomDrawGroupRow or GridView.CustomDrawRowFooter event, the RowHandle property returns the group row handle that identifies the painted element. Finally, when handling the GridView.CustomDrawFooter event, the property returns the GridControl.InvalidRowHandle field value. This is becauset the View footer doesn’t correspond to any row.

Use the RowHandle property to identify the painted element and obtain row data. In this case, you can implement conditional painting based on the element position or the row’s data.
