DataGrid.EnableRowVirtualization Property

.NET Framework (current version)
 

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether row virtualization is enabled.

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

public bool EnableRowVirtualization { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if row virtualization is enabled; otherwise, false. The registered default is true. For more information about what can influence the value, see DependencyProperty.

To improve performance, the EnableRowVirtualization property is set to true by default. When the EnableRowVirtualization property is set to true, the DataGrid does not instantiate a DataGridRow object for each data item in the bound data source. Instead, the DataGrid creates DataGridRow objects only when they are needed, and reuses them as much as it can. For example, the DataGrid creates a DataGridRow object for each data item that is currently in view and recycles the row when it scrolls out of view.
