Virtual Scrolling

By default, the vertical scrollbar in a GridView operates in a standard way: it scrolls the data rows displayed within the current page. GridView also allows you to enable virtual scrolling mode. In this mode, end-users can use the vertical scrollbar to navigate through the grid pages. To enable virtual scrolling mode, set the ASPxGridViewSettings.VerticalScrollBarStyle (via GridViewSettings.Settings.VerticalScrollBarStyle) property to GridViewVerticalScrollBarStyle.Virtual. In this mode, the vertical scroll bar can be used with or without the built-in pager to dynamically load the requested page data via callbacks. If the pager is used, GridView automatically highlights to the required page.


When virtual scrolling is turned on and row focusing is enabled, the first row is always focused between callbacks.

For virtual scrolling to work properly, the following rules should be observed.


The code sample below illustrates how to implement virtual scrolling within the GridView extension.
