VGridControl() Constructor

Creates a new VGridControl object with default settings.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public VGridControl()
Public Sub New

Remarks

Use the constructor to create a new vertical grid control at runtime. Note that the created control's Parent property must be set to a form or another control that will contain the vertical grid. Otherwise, the created control will not be displayed.

Examples

The sample code below shows you how to:

  • create a new vertical grid control;
  • bind the control to data (the dynamically created dataset is assigned to the VGridControl.DataSource property for this purpose);
  • show the control on a form, filling the entire form with it (the form is assigned to the Parent property of the control).

The result of executing the sample code is shown in the image below:

VGrid - CreatingNew

using DevExpress.XtraVerticalGrid;

private void Form1_Load(object sender, System.EventArgs e) {
   // creating a new vertical grid control
   VGridControl vGrid1 = new VGridControl();
   this.Controls.Add(vGrid1);
   vGrid1.Dock = DockStyle.Fill;
   // creating the data source for the grid
   DataSet gridSource = new DataSet();
   gridSource.ReadXml("E:\\DBs\\cars.xml");
   // binding the grid to the data source and creating rows for all fields
   vGrid1.DataSource = gridSource.Tables["Cars"];
   vGrid1.RetrieveFields();
}
