public virtual string Caption { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

Column caption.


Use this property to set a string which describes column data. If the column is visible, its caption is displayed in the HeaderPanel of the XtraTreeList.

By default, the Caption property is set to an empty string. In this instance, a friendly caption is generated for a column based on its TreeListColumn.FieldName property. Friendly captions are generated adding SPACE characters between parts of the field name starting with uppercase letters. For example, if the field name is “CustomerName”, the display caption will be “Customer Name”. To override the default display caption, assign it to the Caption property.

If the TreeListOptionsView.AllowHtmlDrawHeaders property is set to true, you can use HTML tags to format the Caption. For detailed information, see HTML Text Formatting.
