ColumnsListEditor Class

Represents the base class for built-in grid-like List Editors.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Editors

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v21.2.dll


public abstract class ColumnsListEditor :


The ColumnsListEditor serves as the base class for List Editors that represent object collections in the form of a grid. In such grids, a row represents a particular object and columns represent the object properties.

Compared to the ListEditor class, the ColumnsListEditor class introduces members dealing with columns such as the ColumnsListEditor.AddColumn and ColumnsListEditor.RemoveColumn methods. Note that the ColumnsListEditor‘s members are not intended to be used in your code and are used internally by XAF. To customize the columns displayed by a List Editor for a particular List View, use the Application Model‘s corresponding Views | ListView | Columns node. To learn how to customize the Application Model in code, refer to the Access the Application Model in Code.
