GridViewColumn Class


Represents a column that displays data.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Controls
Assembly:  PresentationFramework (in PresentationFramework.dll)

[StyleTypedPropertyAttribute(Property = "HeaderContainerStyle", 
	StyleTargetType = typeof(GridViewColumnHeader))]
[LocalizabilityAttribute(LocalizationCategory.None, Readability = Readability.Unreadable)]
public class GridViewColumn : DependencyObject, INotifyPropertyChanged


Initializes a new instance of the GridViewColumn class.


Gets the actual width of a GridViewColumn.


Gets or sets the template to use to display the contents of a column cell.


Gets or sets a DataTemplateSelector that determines the template to use to display cells in a column.


Gets the DependencyObjectType that wraps the CLR type of this instance. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the Dispatcher this DispatcherObject is associated with. (Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Gets or sets the data item to bind to for this column.


Gets or sets the content of the header of a GridViewColumn.


Gets or sets the style to use for the header of the GridViewColumn.


Gets or sets a composite string that specifies how to format the Header property if it is displayed as a string.


Gets or sets the template to use to display the content of the column header.


Gets or sets the DataTemplateSelector that provides logic to select the template to use to display the column header.


Gets a value that indicates whether this instance is currently sealed (read-only).(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets or sets the width of the column.


Determines whether the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)


Clears the local value of a property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyProperty identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Clears the local value of a read-only property. The property to be cleared is specified by a DependencyPropertyKey. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Coerces the value of the specified . This is accomplished by invoking any CoerceValueCallback function specified in property metadata for the dependency property as it exists on the calling DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Determines whether a provided DependencyObject is equivalent to the current DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Allows an object to try to free resources and perform other cleanup operations before it is reclaimed by garbage collection.(Inherited from Object.)


Gets a hash code for this DependencyObject.(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Creates a specialized enumerator for determining which dependency properties have locally set values on this DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Gets the Type of the current instance.(Inherited from Object.)


Returns the current effective value of a on this instance of a DependencyObject. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Re-evaluates the effective value for the specified dependency property(Inherited from DependencyObject.)


Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.(Inherited from Object.)

System_CAPS_protmethodOnHeaderStringFormatChanged(String, String)

Occurs when the HeaderStringFormat property changes.


Invoked whenever the effective value of any on this DependencyObject has been updated. The specific dependency property that changed is reported in the event data. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Returns the local value of a , if it exists. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetCurrentValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the value of a without changing its value source. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetValue(DependencyProperty, Object)

Sets the local value of a , specified by its dependency property identifier. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT

System_CAPS_pubmethodSetValue(DependencyPropertyKey, Object)

Sets the local value of a read-only , specified by the DependencyPropertyKey identifier of the dependency property. (Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Returns a value that indicates whether serialization processes should serialize the value for the provided .(Inherited from DependencyObject.)GTMT


Creates a string representation of the GridViewColumn.(Overrides Object.ToString().)


Enforces that the calling thread has access to this DispatcherObject.(Inherited from DispatcherObject.)

A GridViewColumn is used by the GridView view mode to display a column of data. The ListView that implements the GridView view mode provides the data for the column. You use data binding to specify the data for the GridViewColumn.

You can use the DisplayMemberBinding property to define the data to display in a column. You can also define the data as part of a DataTemplate that is specified by the CellTemplate property. If different cells have different DataTemplate objects, the CellTemplateSelector property can specify a DataTemplateSelector. The following list shows the properties mentioned here, in their order of precedence from highest to lowest:

The GridViewColumn class also contains properties that you can use to define and customize the column header for the column. The Header property can define the content of the column header. Other properties such as HeaderTemplate and HeaderContainerStyle can also specify content and style for the column header. Some of these properties are also found on other classes such as the GridViewColumnHeader class. For more information about the properties that are used to define styles and templates for column headers, and for information about the order of precedence for these properties, see GridView Column Header Styles and Templates Overview.

The GridViewColumn class implements the INotifyPropertyChanged interface. This interface provides the ability to subscribe to the events that occur when a change occurs to a property value, such as the ActualWidth property value.

The following example shows how to define GridViewColumn objects for a GridView.
