Columns

The ASP.NET MVC GridView extension is designed to display and edit tabular information. Data sources present this information using data fields and records. In GridView, data fields are represented as columns and a record is displayed as a data row.

There are three types of columns.

  • Data Columns

    Data columns are used to display and edit data. There are fifteen types of data columns used to display and edit various types of data (e.g., string, Boolean, DateTime and memo data).

  • Command Column

    Command columns allow end-users to switch GridView to an edit mode, update data, select data rows, etc.

  • Band Columns

    Band columns are used to contain other (child) columns, and therefore help you organize grid columns in logical groups (bands).
