Object Type Path to AllowColumnMoving


Column headers can be dragged within the column header panel to reorder columns or to the Customization Form to hide the columns. If the View’s GridOptionsCustomization.AllowGroup and the column’s OptionsColumn.AllowGroup options are enabled, column headers can also be dragged to the group panel.

To prevent individual columns from being moved set their OptionsColumn.AllowMove property to false.

Note that columns can still be moved via code using the GridColumn.VisibleIndex property regardless of the values of the AllowColumnMoving or OptionsColumn.AllowMove properties.
