Find Panel

Expanded Overview

The grid can display a find panel that enables users to search for keywords in data. The panel searches against records in the vertical grid (see VGridControl), and property names in the property grid (see PropertyGridControl).

Note

Run the XtraVerticalGrid demo to see the find panel in action.

Keyboard operations

  • press Ctrl+F to open the find panel
  • press Esc once to clear the panel, press it again to close it
  • press the Down Arrow key to move focus from the panel to the grid

Expanded Options

The VGridControlBase.OptionsFind property provides access to options specific to the find panel.

Panel visibility

Highlight results

To specify whether search queries are highlighted, use the VGridOptionsFind.HighlightFindResults property.

Specify search queries in code

Search Syntax

The search syntax can vary depending on the VGridOptionsFind.ParserKind and VGridOptionsFind.Condition properties. See Find Panel Syntax for more information.

Operation buttons

Auto-apply search queries

After a user types in the search box, the search starts automatically depending on the underlying data source. You can use use the VGridOptionsFind.FindMode property to specify this behavior. The VGridOptionsFind.FindDelay property allows you to specify the delay between when you enter a query and when the search starts.
