Fixed Bands

Expanded Online Video

This video shows you how to keep bands visible at all times, regardless of horizontal scrolling.

Expanded Fixed Bands

Banded Grid Views and Advanced Banded Grid Views allow you to anchor bands to a View's left or right edge. As a result, horizontal scrolling will not affect such bands. This is useful if you always require bands to be displayed, regardless of scrolling.

Note that Grid Views enable you to anchor individual columns as described in the Fixed Columns topic. Banded Views don't allow this. Thus, the BandedGridColumn class overrides the GridColumn.Fixed column property to prevent the value from changing.

To anchor a band to a View edge, use a band's GridBand.Fixed property. By default, this property value is FixedStyle.None, and the band is not fixed and is allowed to scroll. Setting the property to FixedStyle.Left or FixedStyle.Right anchors the band to the left or right View edge respectively. Fixed bands are visually separated from other bands by a fixed line. You can change this line's width using the GridView.FixedLineWidth property.

The image below shows a banded View with bands fixed to the left and right edges.

Note that anchoring bands makes sense only when the columns auto width feature is disabled and when the total width of columns exceeds the View's width. Otherwise, horizontal scrolling cannot be performed and fixed bands behave like ordinary bands.
