Please help...again...

I have two grids in my application with identical columns....I want to dynamically change the position of the columns in grid2 when the user changes a column's position in grid1.

so, if the user moves say column "Name" from position 1 to 5 in grid1, I want to dynamically move Column "Name" to position 5 in Grid2

Hi Nedu,

To programatically change the column position, you need to use the move method in GridTableDescriptor.VisibleColumns property. If you want to detect the drag column index at runtime then handle the TableControlQueryAllowDragColumn event in a grid. Below is a code snippet that show this.

//For move columns in a grid.

private void gridGroupingControl1_TableControlQueryAllowDragColumn(object sender, GridQueryAllowDragColumnEventArgs e)
if (e.Reason == GridQueryAllowDragColumnReason.MouseUp)
int insertBeforFieldIndex = e.TableControl.TableDescriptor.NameToField(e.InsertBeforeColumn);
int FieldIndex = e.TableControl.TableDescriptor.NameToField(e.Column);
if( FieldIndex < insertBeforFieldIndex )
this.gridGroupingControl2.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns.Move( FieldIndex, insertBeforFieldIndex - 1);
this.gridGroupingControl2.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns.Move( FieldIndex, insertBeforFieldIndex);

Please refer to attached sample for implementation and let me know if this helps.

Best regards,
