Property Value

Type Description

A AppearanceObject object that contains corresponding style settings.


When a Customization Form is empty, it displays hint text detailing the purpose of the Customization Form. The hint text is stored in the GridLocalizer class, and can be accessed and localized by overriding the GridLocalizer.GetLocalizedString method. Use the GridStringId.CustomizationFormColumnHint constant to identify the hint text via the GridLocalizer.GetLocalizedString method. See Localization to learn more.

The CustomizationFormHint property allows the appearance (font settings, color and alignment) of the hint text to be customized.
