LayoutView.ShowCustomizationForm() Method

Displays the Customization Form modally.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Layout

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v19.1.dll


public virtual void ShowCustomizationForm()


An end-user can invoke the Customization Form by clicking the Customize button within the Header Panel. To invoke the Customization Form in code, call the ShowCustomizationForm method. The Customization Form is displayed modally.

Setting the LayoutViewOptionsCustomization.UseAdvancedRuntimeCustomization property to true enables advanced customization capabilities via the Customization Form. Use the properties provided by the LayoutView.OptionsCustomization object to specify which advanced customization options must be accessible to end-users.

If the LayoutViewOptionsBehavior.AllowRuntimeCustomization property is set to false, the Customization Form cannot be displayed.


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