Hi Nikhil Jain,

You may expose a new property in the ColumnSettings class - DisplayIndex for example that save the original DisplayIndex property of each column.

Hi Nikhil Jain,

May you take another look at our demos considering the Save and Load RadGridView Layout Settings ? The ColumnSetting class exposes the above-mentioned property - DisplayIndex that keeps the value of the DisplayIndex property of each column. Consequently, once you reorder the columns, their index will be save and loaded again afterwards. Do you have any troubles with this particular example ?

Hi Maya

I am having an Error message : "GridViewDataControl_ColumnDisplayIndexOutOfRange Sales Use
Parameter name: displayIndex"
public class ColumnSetting : PropertySetting
   {
       public string UniqueName { get; set; }
       public object Header { get; set; }
       public double? Width { get; set; }
       public int DisplayIndex { get; set; }
   }


foreach (ColumnSetting setting in Settings.ColumnSettings)
                    {
                         
                        GridViewDataColumn column = new GridViewDataColumn();
                        column.UniqueName = setting.UniqueName;
                        column.Header = setting.Header;
                        column.DisplayIndex = setting.DisplayIndex;
                        if (setting.Width != null)
                        {
                            column.Width = new GridViewLength(setting.Width.Value);
                              
                        }
  
                        grid.Columns.Add(column);
                    }

Hello Nikhil Jain,

May you take another look at our demos considering the Save and Load RadGridView Layout Settings and implement the code for the LoadState() method ? The code from the demo corresponding to the one you posted is:
if (this.grid != null)
           {
               grid.FrozenColumnCount = Settings.FrozenColumnCount;
 
               if (Settings.ColumnSettings.Count > 0)
               {
                   foreach (ColumnSetting setting in Settings.ColumnSettings)
                   {
                       ColumnSetting currentSetting = setting;
 
                       GridViewDataColumn column = (from c in grid.Columns.OfType<GridViewDataColumn>()
                                                    where c.UniqueName == currentSetting.UniqueName
                                                    select c).FirstOrDefault();
 
                       if (column != null)
                       {
                           if (currentSetting.DisplayIndex != null)
                           {
                               column.DisplayIndex = currentSetting.DisplayIndex.Value;
                           }
 
                           if (setting.Width != null)
                           {
                               column.Width = new GridViewLength(setting.Width.Value);
                           }
                       }
                   }
               }

This code is created against our current official release Q3 2010 SP1. What version of RadControls are you using ? 
Still, I am sending you a sample project that you may use for a reference and testing the functionality locally.

Hi,

 With 2012 Q3 you should use our Persistence Framework:

Hello Vlad,

Is there anyway to save the GridViewSettings to XML format? As I realised those demo it only save for temporary usage after I closed the application it couldn't load the settings I saved earlier. I hope there is an example which could save the gridview settings to XML format so it could load the XML settings based on each user log in. Sorry I'm new in development so hope you don't mind.
