Column Chooser


This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

The Column Chooser allows end-users to show and hide a grid's columns at runtime. It lists all columns contained in the GridControl.Columns collection. By default, the Column Chooser is shown when an end-user touches and holds a column header and then taps the Show Column Chooser item in the invoked menu.


When an end-user selects or clears a check box next to a column header in the Column Chooser, the GridColumn.IsVisible property of the corresponding column is set to true or false. You can use this property to hide or show a column in code.

To invoke or close the Column Chooser programmatically, use the GridControl.ShowColumnChooser or GridControl.HideColumnChooser method.

To disable the Column Chooser for end-users, set the GridControl.IsColumnChooserEnabled property to false. In this case, the Show Column Chooser item disappears from the column header's popup menu.
