BaseRow.GetRowProperties(Int32) Method

Returns an object containing type specific row settings.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.Rows

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.v22.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.VerticalGrid


public RowProperties GetRowProperties(
    int index


Name Type Description
index Int32

A zero-based integer value representing the index of the object that contains the row settings.


Type Description

A RowProperties object or its descendant that represents type specific row properties. null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if the index parameter value is negative or exceeds the maximum index available.


The GetRowProperties method returns an object that contains row settings, specified by its index.

Multi-editor rows can maintain a collection of RowProperties derived objects. This collection is accessed via the row’s MultiEditorRow.PropertiesCollection property. Objects that contain row settings are stored as indexed items in the collection. Thus, you should specify a proper index when using the GetRowProperties method to gain access to the desired object.

The number of row items contained within a row can be obtained via the MultiEditorRowPropertiesCollection.Count property.

As for simple rows (category and editor rows) they refer to a single object representing specific row settings. So, to access these row settings use the BaseRow.Properties property. If you want to use the GetRowProperties method, a 0 value should be passed as the index parameter.


The following sample code declares the FindRowItemByCaption method that searches the rows collection specified by the rows parameter for a row item with the specified caption. This method returns the first row item found.

The specified collection of rows and their children are traversed using the Rows Iterator‘s VGridRowsIterator.DoLocalOperation method. The operation performed on the row visited is specified by the FindRowItemOperation object. Once a row item with the specified caption is found, the operation’s RowOperation.CanContinueIteration property is automatically set to false. This indicates that the operation must be stopped. The operation’s RowProperties property represents the row item with the specified caption. null (Nothing in Visual Basic) is returned if no item is found.
