What is the use of the GetCells and SetCells methods in WinForms GridControl?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl

GetCells and SetCells method

The GetCells method gets a table, like GridStyleInfoStoreTable, that represents a range of cells when GridRangeInfo is specified. A GridStyleInfoStoreTable object holds the contents for all the cells.

The SetCells changes the contents for a range of cells in one batch, that is, when it is given a target, like GridRangeInfo and a table that holds the contents of the cells, like GridStyleInfoStoreTable, it sets the target with the table's value along with all the cell’s Style properties.


int colCount = this.gridControl1.ColCount;
GridRangeInfo source = GridRangeInfo.Cells(top, 1, bottom, colCount);
GridRangeInfo target = GridRangeInfo.Cells(top + 4, 1, bottom + 4, colCount);
GridStyleInfoStoreTable cells = this.gridControl1.GetCells(source);
this.gridControl1.SetCells(target, cells);
//this.gridControl1.Rows.InsertRange(4, 4);


Dim colCount As Integer = Me.gridControl1.ColCount
Dim source As GridRangeInfo = GridRangeInfo.Cells(top, 1, bottom, colCount)
Dim target As GridRangeInfo = GridRangeInfo.Cells(top + 4, 1, bottom + 4, colCount)
Dim cells As GridStyleInfoStoreTable = Me.gridControl1.GetCells(source)
Me.gridControl1.SetCells(target, cells)
'this.gridControl1.Rows.InsertRange(4, 4);
