Constructors
NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod GridViewColumn

Initializes a new instance of the GridViewColumn class.

Properties
NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets the actual width of a GridViewColumn.

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

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

System_CAPS_pubproperty

Gets or sets the width of the column.

Methods
NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubmethod CheckAccess

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod ClearValue

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod ClearValue

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod CoerceValue

Coerces the value of the specified dependency property. 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.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod Equals

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

System_CAPS_protmethod Finalize

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetHashCode

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetLocalValueEnumerator

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetType

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod GetValue

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod InvalidateProperty

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

System_CAPS_protmethod MemberwiseClone

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

System_CAPS_protmethod OnHeaderStringFormatChanged

Occurs when the property changes.

System_CAPS_protmethod OnPropertyChanged

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

System_CAPS_protmethod OnPropertyChanged
System_CAPS_pubmethod ReadLocalValue

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod SetCurrentValue

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod SetValue

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod SetValue

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

System_CAPS_protmethod ShouldSerializeProperty

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

System_CAPS_pubmethod ToString

Creates a string representation of the GridViewColumn.(Overrides ObjectToString.)

System_CAPS_pubmethod VerifyAccess

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

Explicit Interface Implementations
NameDescription
System_CAPS_pubinterface System_CAPS_privevent INotifyPropertyChangedPropertyChanged

Occurs when the value of any GridViewColumn property changes.

Remarks

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 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 property. If different cells have different DataTemplate objects, the 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 property can define the content of the column header. Other properties such as and 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 property value.

Examples

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


<ListView ItemsSource="{Binding Source={StaticResource EmployeeData}, 
                                        XPath=Employee}">
  <ListView.View>       
    <GridView>
      <GridViewColumn Header="First Name"
               DisplayMemberBinding="{Binding XPath=FirstName}" />
      <GridViewColumn Header="Last Name"  
               CellTemplate="{StaticResource LastNameCellTemplate}"/>
      <GridViewColumn Header="Favorite City" 
               CellTemplateSelector="{DynamicResource 
                                      FavoriteCityTemplateSelector}"/>
    </GridView>
  </ListView.View>    
</ListView>
