  • Sorting

    RadListView features integrated sorting which can be set to automatically sort data entries by setting a preferred sorting condition. In addition, the entries can be sorted according to any field, regardless of how this field is presented in the UI – it can use “main” field of entry, a secondary field, or even an invisible one. The items here are sorted by Year of Manufacture.

  • Robust Data Binding and Data Management

    You can bind RadListView to whatever data source your application is using—no limits. Also, you can choose the optimal data mode to manage your data most effectively:

    • Bound mode for codeless and fully automatic data management; 
    • Unbound mode for displaying static and/or having custom interaction with the data source.
    Using virtualization, you can bind the controls to thousands of items in milliseconds, reinforcing the Progress commitment to excellent performance without sacrificing features.
  • Item Size and Customization

    The width and height of items and groups can be either automatically calculated or predefined to a certain value. In addition, DetailsView supports best-fitting columns and column resize.

    You can fully customize an item’s appearance (colors, fonts, text and image relation and so on) using the formatting events. Or, you can completely replace visual items with custom ones.

  • Selection and Check Boxes

    The control features single and multiple selection, and, in ListView and DetailsView view modes, the FullRowSelect property determines whether to include only the item in the selection or the whole row.

    In addition, each item in the control has a built-in check box. The item’s checkbox can be shown with a single property setting, and a convenient collection returns all currently checked items.
