Accessing Columns

The ASPxGridView control stores its columns within the ASPxGridView.Columns collection. The collection of visible columns can be accessed via the ASPxGridView.VisibleColumns property.

An individual column can be accessed via the GridViewColumnCollection.Item property by specifying one of the following column characteristics:

Note

There is the following priority in using string column identifiers when searching for a column.

  • First, the Name property match is searched for.
  • Then, the first FieldName property match is searched for.
  • At last, the first Caption property match is searched for.

Below is an example of accessing columns using different column characteristics.

Client columns can be accessed using the ASPxClientGridView.GetColumn, ASPxClientGridView.GetColumnByField or ASPxClientGridView.GetColumnById method.
