.OptionsMenu .ShowAddNewSummaryItem


The ShowAddNewSummaryItem property allows you to show or hide the “Add New Summary” submenu item in the footer menu. The item lets an end-user add multiple summaries at runtime:

Add New Summary

By default, this property is set to DefaultBoolean.Default. This is equivalent to DefaultBoolean.True for GridView and BandedGridView Views, and to DefaultBoolean.False for AdvBandedGridView View.

To add multiple total summaries for a column in code, use the GridColumn.Summary property.

The “Add New Summary” submenu contains all available summaries, except those that have been applied to a column.


The example demonstrates how to hide the “Add New Summary” item in the footer menu.

gridView1.OptionsMenu.ShowAddNewSummaryItem = DefaultBoolean.False;
