When the WinExplorer View is displayed in the Tiles or Content style (to specify the View style, use the WinExplorerView.OptionsView.Style property), it can display the Description data column. The field in the underlying data source for the Description data column is specified by the WinExplorerView.ColumnSet.DescriptionColumn property. If the ShowDescription property is set to Default or True, the Description data column is displayed. Set the ShowDescription property to False, to hide this column.
