RowProperties.UnboundDataType Property

Allows you to make the row unbound, and specify the type of data it stores.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.Rows

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.VerticalGrid


public Type UnboundDataType { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

The type of data to store in the unbound row.


If the UnboundDataType property is not set to a valid data type (the property’s default value is System.Void), the current row is considered bound to a data source field (RowProperties.FieldName).

To switch a row to unbound mode, do the following:

  • Set the UnboundDataType property to the type of values this row should store.
  • Assign a unique field name to the RowProperties.FieldName property. The field name must not match the field name of another row nor the name of a data source field.
  • Use one of the following techniques to populate the unbound row with data:

See the following help topic for more information: Unbound Rows.


In the following example, it is assumed that the Vertical Grid is bound to a table that contains the “Quantity”, “UnitPrice” and “Discount” fields. The code below adds an unbound row that calculates the total order amount according to the following expression: Quantity*UnitPrice*(1-Discount).


using DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid;
using DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.Rows;
using DevExpress.Data;
using DevExpress.Utils;
using DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.Events;

// Unbound row.
EditorRow rowTotal = null;

private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    // ...
    vGridControl1.CustomUnboundData += new CustomDataEventHandler(vGridControl1_CustomUnboundData);
    // Create and initialize the unbound Total row.
    rowTotal = new EditorRow();
    rowTotal.Properties.Caption = "Total";
    rowTotal.Properties.FieldName = "Total";
    // Specify format settings.
    rowTotal.Properties.Format.FormatType = FormatType.Numeric;
    rowTotal.Properties.Format.FormatString = "c";            
    // Disable edit operations.
    rowTotal.Properties.ReadOnly = true;            
    rowTotal.Properties.UnboundDataType = typeof(decimal);
    // Customize the appearance settings.
    rowTotal.Appearance.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(179, 226, 221);
    rowTotal.Appearance.Font = new System.Drawing.Font(rowTotal.Appearance.Font, 

// Provide data for the Total row.
private void vGridControl1_CustomUnboundData(object sender, CustomDataEventArgs e) {
    VGridControl vGrid = sender as VGridControl;
    if (e.Row == rowTotal && e.IsGetData) {
        DataRowView row = (DataRowView)vGrid.GetRecordObject(e.ListSourceRowIndex);
        decimal unitPrice = Convert.ToDecimal(row["UnitPrice"]);
        decimal quantity = Convert.ToDecimal(row["Quantity"]);
        decimal discount = Convert.ToDecimal(row["Discount"]); ;
        e.Value = unitPrice * quantity * (1 - discount);
