I want to save the selection made by user in radgridview column chooser so on next time binding the grid we can hide the columns selected by user.I didn't find any event that is fired so I can save the items added in column chooser.Is there any way to do so?

Hi Dee Gupta,

You can use two possible solutions for this situation.

1) Set AutoGenerateColumns property of GridViewTemplate to false and when you re-bind, your Column collection will not change.

2) Save one List with your invisible columns (IsVisible == false), rebind, handle DataBindingComplete event, and hide the generated columns using your previous saved List of invisible columns.

All the best,

Thanks for quick reply.

You suggested

I need to know at what event should I save the column list so I can use it while next time binding the grid.

Hi Everyone,
I am using Column Chooser so that I can drag column from Grid view which I don't required so
for e.g I choose 3 column(Name, Date, Age) and I dragged into chooser  and I exit that Application and again If Run that Application I want that the column which I dragged into chooser as above mentioned I want that the column should remain in chooser only.
For this process My Sir has given some hint that make text file and save the columns which are there in chooser 
So how it possible please help Me.

Hi Zakariya,

Thank you for writing.

You could accomplish this type of behavior by using our SaveLayout and LoadLayout methods. Please refer to the following article for more information. I have also prepared a code snippet which you can see below:
public partial class Form1 : Form
{
    private string layout;
 
    public Form1()
    {
        InitializeComponent();
 
        this.FormClosing +=Form1_FormClosing;
        this.layout = @"..\..\..\layout.xml";
    }
 
    private void Form1_FormClosing(object sender, FormClosingEventArgs e)
    {
        this.radGridView1.SaveLayout(layout);
    }
 
    private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
    {
        this.productsTableAdapter.Fill(this.nwindDataSet.Products);
        if (File.Exists(layout))
        {
            this.radGridView1.LoadLayout(layout);
        }
    }
}

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions please do not hesitate to write back.

This worked for me.  It was a last ditch effort though.  I didn't want to wait until the form closed before calling .SaveLayout().  I wanted to know the instant a user added/removed a column via the column chooser; however, this ended up working.
