public bool DrawGrid { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


true, to display the snap grid; otherwise, false.


By default, when a report is being edited, it is lined up by the snap grid. This helps to establish the distance between report elements and precisely align them to each other.

The DrawGrid property allows you to show or hide the snap grid as shown in the following image.

DrawGrid = true DrawGrid = false
DrawGrid_true DrawGrid_false

To specify whether to snap controls to the snap grid, use the XtraReport.SnappingMode property. To change the snap grid dimensions, use the XtraReport.SnapGridSize property.


You can set the DrawGrid property globally, so that all the newly created reports have this property set to the required value. For this purpose, use the Report Designer Options dialog available within the XtraReports menu.
