Is there any Clone() method available?

Hello! I´m using a 1.6 version of the Grid and I want to clone a DataBoundGrid object, but there´s no Clone() method available (Or maybe i can´t find it). Is there any method with the same functionality? Thanks in advance.

There is no clone method for a GridDataBoundGrid. As far as the data the grid displays, you would either use the same datasource or clone the datasource and use it. There is a Clone method for the grid.GridBoundColumns object (or grid.Binder.InternalColumns if you did not add GridBounds). So you can use that to get a clone of the column information. Here is a thread that uses this clone in persisting column order and widths to a disk file. You could use something similar to create your own clone of these properties. http://www.syncfusion.com/Support/Forums/message.aspx?MessageID=3918

We try to use this method but when we refill de datasource before clone the grid.GridBoundColumns the control don´t refresh any changes. We have to print a datasource keeping the column format, but we can´t reload the datasource in the control. So we need to make a clone, in memory, of the grid model, load the new datasource and print it. Thanks in advance.

Here is a little sample showing how you might clone a GridDataBoundGrid in memory. (There may be other properties that you want to handle as well.) CloneGridDataBoundGrid_8898.zip
