Banded Grid View

The Banded Grid View is a View that displays data in a two-dimensional table, while organizing columns in bands. This topic describes the basic features of the Banded Grid View.

Expanded Banded Grid View Basics

The Banded Grid View (BandedGridView) combines columns into bands (GridBand objects). A band can own one or more columns, or one or more other bands (making it possible to build a hierarchy of bands).

The following image shows a Banded Grid View containing two top-level bands (Car and MPG) and two nested bands (Model and Category).

Column headers (and cells) in the Banded Grid View cannot be displayed one under another and cannot have different heights. If you need these features, use the Advanced Banded Grid View.

In banded Views, columns are represented by BandedGridColumn objects. You can access all available columns from the BandedGridView.Columns collection. Note that the presence of a column in the BandedGridView.Columns collection does not automatically make this column visible. For the column to be displayed, it needs to be added to a specific band, as described in the BandedGridColumn topic.

To access all bands, use the BandedGridView.Bands property. As mentioned above, you can organize bands in a hierarchical structure. In this case, you can use the GridBand.Children property to access a band's child bands.

As in other grid Views, individual cells in the Banded Grid View can be identified by their columns and row handles. The Column and Card Field Overview and Rows and Cards Overview topics provide detailed information about columns and rows, respectively.

Expanded Band Customization Features

  • Customizing the Band Layout

    Similar to the Grid View, each column within a Banded Grid View can be moved, resized or fixed at a specific position, but in the Banded Grid View, columns can be moved between bands. Bands can also be moved, resized or fixed at a particular position. For more information, see the Customizing the Band Layout topic.

  • Hiding Unused Bands and Columns

    This feature is inherited from the Grid View and adds the ability to hide columns and bands by dragging them to the Customization Form. The column or band reappears when its header is dragged back from the Customization Form to the View.
