How to resolve scrolling position issue when disabling the RowHeaders and ColumnHeaders in WinForms GridControl or GridDataBoundGrid?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl
Tags: header, scrollbar

Scrollbar thumbtrack position

By default, the scrollbar’s ThumbTrack position is set based on the column position and row position. But the ThumbTrack is not set to correct position when grid’s RowHeaders and ColumnHeaders are disabled with the RowHeaders and ColumnHeaders property. The following screenshot illustrates the exact issue.

Show the scrollbar in horizontal and vertical with unwanted space



The vertical scrollbar’s and horizontal scrollbar’s ThumbTrack can be tracked to correct scroll position by enabling the UseOldHiddenScrollLogic static property of the GridControlBase. This property is set before the InitializeComponent() or grid initializing code.


//The following property is enabled above the grid initialization code or InitializeComponent()
GridControlBase.UseOldHiddenScrollLogic = true;


'The following property is enabled above the grid initialization code or InitializeComponent()
GridControlBase.UseOldHiddenScrollLogic = true



This is applicable for the GridDataBoundGrid control also.
