A GridColumn object


Type Description

A string representing the specified column’s display caption.


The pattern used to generate fields’ captions is specified by the View’s LayoutView.FieldCaptionFormat property. The GetFieldCaption method allows you to get the display caption for a specific column.


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