Name Type Description
rowHandle Int32

An integer value specifying the card by its row handle.


Type Description

A string value representing the specified card’s caption text.


The text displayed within card captions is specified by the View’s CardView.CardCaptionFormat property. The property sets the caption text pattern and the actual caption texts may differ for different cards. It may depend upon field values within a card and card number. That actual caption text for a particular card can be obtained using the GetCardCaption method. This method can be used, for instance, when handling the CardView.CustomDrawCardCaption event. It will allow you to paint caption texts as specified by the CardView.CardCaptionFormat property.


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