Advanced Button Properties
- Calendar Properties
- Client Side Properties
'Client-side' properties for a Grid include Calculated Fields, Show/hide Fields, Enable Expressions, Conditional Styles, and Client-side Formatting. Not all of these properties will appear on every control type available.
- Column Properties
There are situations where you will want to hide a column or row. This will be true if you are placing the field in a different column or row using a Freeform template. A freeform layout allows to insert any HTML code plus any combination of fields on the grid into a grid column.
- Control Properties

Grid row properties help alter the look and feel of grid rows.
- Spacer Properties
Properties specific to the Grid spacer control.
- Summary Values
Computes summary information, such as total, average, or minimum, for a field in the Grid. Summary values can be displayed on the Grid and used in client-side and server-side expressions.
- Update Settings
If the grid is editable and the control type is editable, you may optionally suppress editing of the field that you view through the control. You may also set a minimum security level required to change the field's contents.
To display an individual field's Properties menu simply select that field in the Selected: Fields list. The properties for each field control you select are defined on the right side of the screen. These Field Properties change depending on the control selected, whether that control is editable or not, and the nature of the grid layout selected. The default values for these properties produce a useable starting configuration for your grid. This means that you can largely ignore these optional properties when you are learning to build grids or you expect to gradually refine your design in later revisions.
By default the Field Properties for any given field are displayed by Category. Right clicking on the white space in the Field Properties list will display other options. These include Categorized , the default, which displays menu options in groups; Alphabetical, which displays all menu options in a single alphabetized group; The Toolbar visible option, which displays buttons that switch between Categorized and Alphabetical display modes; and the Help visible option, which displays help for the currently selected property at the bottom of the property menu.
