How do I change column display order in the GridGroupingControl?

Platform: ASP.NET Web Forms (Classic) |
Control: GridGroupingControl |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2019

Clicking on the Columns (or VisibleColumns) property of the Grid's TableDescriptor launches the GridColumnDescriptor Collection Editor, where you select a column and click on the Up or Down arrow to rearrange the display order.

To programatically change the display order of columns in the Grid:


//Make the Col4 to be the first column to be displayed in the grid

this.GridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns[0].Name = "Col4";


'Make the Col4 to be the first column to be displayed in the grid

Me.GridGroupingControl1.TableDescriptor.VisibleColumns(0).Name = "Col4"
