How to avoid rangestyles or other collections being written out as code in a derived WinForms Gridcontrol?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: GridControl


When a derived grid is dropped onto a form at the design-time, the styles that are changed in the derived grid's constructor are written as code in the form. You can avoid this serialization to code by overriding the respective properties and by setting it to the DesignerSerializationVisibility.Hidden.

As an example, the SerializeCellsBehavior being serialized to code can be avoided by overriding the SerializeCellsBehavior and setting it to the DesignerSerializationVisibility.Hidden.


[Browsable(false), DesignerSerializationVisibility(DesignerSerializationVisibility.Hidden)]
public new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSerializeCellsBehavior SerializeCellsBehavior
      return base.SerializeCellsBehavior;
      base.SerializeCellsBehavior = value;


<Browsable(False), DesignerSerializationVisibility(DesignerSerializationVisibility.Hidden)>
Public Shadows Property SerializeCellsBehavior() As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSerializeCellsBehavior
       Return MyBase.SerializeCellsBehavior
   End Get
   Set(ByVal value As Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Grid.GridSerializeCellsBehavior)
       MyBase.SerializeCellsBehavior = value
   End Set
End Property
