Field Chooser Hide all Columns --> how to run Field Chooser again?

Hi there,

GGC ( using Fieldchooser.

When the user deselects all columns and closes the Field Chooser he has no chance to reopen the Field Chooser again as there are no columns to click.

As we persist the schema when the user leaves the control and reloaf it when the user opens it, he will see no more data even after restarting the app.

Is there a way to avoid that a user can deselect all columns?

Or is there a way to prevent special columns from being hidden?

btw: implementing FieldChooser is extremly easy. Thank you to the developer for this solution.

Hi Sascha,
Thank you for using Syncfusion products.

You could add fieldChooserToolStripMenuItem of the FieldChooser to the required ContextMenuStrip to achieve the desired behavior.

FieldChooser fchooser;
fchooser = new FieldChooser(this.gridGroupingControl1);

Please refer to the sample:


Please let me know if this helps.
