    Does the IndexOf() method from GridColumnCollection return a zero based index? 

    What will be returned if the column wasn´t found?




    Remark to:


    GridColumnCollection cols = grid.MasterTableView.Columns;

    GridColumn c = cols.FindByUniqueName(columnName);

    if (c != null)



    FindByUniqueName throws a GridException if the column wasn´t found.

    So why testing c for null?

    Hello Frank,

    The GridColumnCollection is a zero-based collection. Thus, the first item in the collection will have 0 as index.

    Thank you for noting that the FindByUniqueName() method will throw an exception if the column is not found. In order to avoid the exception you can use the FindByUniqueNameSafe() method.
