Hi,
In my grid(s) the GridDropDownColumn is not shown in the available columns list. Is this by design or am I missing something?

Hi Staron,

Hope you trying to access the GridDropDownColumn in the code behind. If so try accessing the column in the PreRender event as shown below.

CS:
 protected void RadGrid1_PreRender(object sender, EventArgs e) 
    { 
        foreach (GridColumn col in RadGrid1.MasterTableView.RenderColumns) 
        { 
            if (col.ColumnType=="GridDropDownColumn"
            {  
             
            } 
        } 
    }

Hi,
I apologize, I see now that I was a bit unclear. I meant that the column was not available in the design time editor.

Hi Staron,

GridDropDownColumn must be present in the "Available column" list . I am not sure with what is happening at your end.  The following help artice also states that these columns will be available during the design time.

Hi,
I've seen that article, but as I've mentioned earlier, it does not show in the available columns list. Is there something from my end that can be done to fix this?
