Save and Restore Layout

ASPxGridView allows you to save the following layout information to a database and then restore it:

  • column visible positions;
  • grid and column width;
  • grid appearance settings;
  • filter, group, sort, and pager information.

Use the ASPxGridView.SettingsCookies property to specify which ASPxGridView layout information to save.

Expanded Save Layout Automatically

Set the ASPxGridCookiesSettings.Enabled property to true to save a grid layout to cookies automatically.

Expanded Save and Restore Layout Manually

  • The ASPxGridBase.ClientLayout event allows you to save a grid's layout each time a user changes it and restore this layout on the first page load. Use the event's ASPxClientLayoutArgs.LayoutMode property to specify whether to save or restore the grid's layout.


    The grid requires a round trip to the server (a callback) to raise the ASPxGridBase.ClientLayout event.

    This example shows how to save or restore the ASPxGridView layout to or from a data store.

  • The following two methods enable you to save and restore the grid layout.

    This example shows how to save and restore the previously saved layout manually. The grid calls the ASPxClientGridView.PerformCallback method to send a callback to the server when a user clicks the Save Layout or Load Layout button. This generates the server-side ASPxGridView.CustomCallback event. Handle this event to save or restore the grid's layout.
