I'm using tags to selectively format cells and using automatic layout saving/loading. When a layout is loaded, cell tags are lost. Example code below. I feel like the cell tag should remain intact and this is a bug? I tried to include a project but only images are allowed on the forum.

        /// </summary>
        /// <param name="disposing">true if managed resources should be disposed; otherwise, false.</param>
        protected override void Dispose(bool disposing)
        {
            if (disposing && (components != null))
            {
                components.Dispose();
            }
            base.Dispose(disposing);
        }
 
        #region Windows Form Designer generated code

Just in case it isn't clear, please click "Save Layout" and then "Load Layout".

Hi Megan,

This is not an issue, we only keep general columns information and the cell are not serialized. In this case, you can set the Tag after the layout is loaded and update the grid with the following method:

private void CmdLoadLayout_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{
 
    //other code omited

    HighlightFieldChanges();
    radGridView1.TableElement.Update(GridUINotifyAction.StateChanged);

}

I hope this helps. Should you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask.

Regards,
Dimitar
