DataGridView.AllowUserToOrderColumns Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether manual column repositioning is enabled.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

member AllowUserToOrderColumns : bool with get, set

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the user can change the column order; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When column repositioning is enabled, users can drag a column header to a new position. Note that frozen and unfrozen columns form two separate groups; users can reposition columns within a group, but cannot move a column from one group to the other.

NoteNote

The DataGridView control does not support double buffering. If DoubleBuffered is set to true in a derived DataGridView control, users will not receive visual feedback when resizing rows, columns, or headers or when reordering columns.

The following code example illustrates the use of this property in a DataGridView control intended primarily for display. In this example, the visual appearance of the control is customized in several ways and the control is configured for limited interactivity. This example is part of a larger example available in the DataGridViewCellStyle class overview.

No code example is currently available or this language may not be supported.
