GridListEditor.GridView Property

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Win.Editors

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Win.v21.1.dll


public GridView GridView { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A GridView object that is the GridControl‘s View used to display data in the GridListEditor.


The GridListEditor uses the GridControl as its control. The GridControl displays data in a UI via special Views. Note, that these Views are not related to the Views used in XAF to construct a UI. The GridControl‘s Views are represented by the GridView class instances. The GridView class provides a two-dimensional representation of data from a data source in grid format.

The example below demonstrates how to set the alternating row color for all List Views in a WinForms application.

using System;
using System.Drawing;
using DevExpress.ExpressApp;
using DevExpress.ExpressApp.Win.Editors;
// ...
public class ListEditorController : ViewController<ListView> {
    private GridListEditor listEditor;
    private void ListEditor_ControlsCreated(object sender, EventArgs e) {
        DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Grid.GridView gridView = ((GridListEditor)View.Editor).GridView;
        gridView.OptionsView.EnableAppearanceOddRow = true;
        gridView.Appearance.OddRow.BackColor = Color.FromArgb(244, 244, 244);
    protected override void OnActivated() {
        listEditor = View.Editor as GridListEditor;
        if (listEditor != null) {
            listEditor.ControlsCreated += ListEditor_ControlsCreated;
    protected override void OnDeactivated() {
        if(listEditor != null) {
            listEditor.ControlsCreated -= ListEditor_ControlsCreated;

To run this code, add the DevExpress.ExpressApp.XtraGrid.v21.1.dll assembly to References.
