Type Description

A LayoutViewHitInfo object that contains information on the View elements located at the test point.

Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the CalcHitInfo member must not be invoked for these Views. The CalcHitInfo 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.
