How to save the content of a Grid to memory rather than in a file system and export to another grid in WinForms GridControl?

2 mins read

Save the content in memory

You can save the contents of a grid in the memory, rather than writing it to a file system by using the SaveSoap or SaveBinary methods to export the WinForms GridControl. The following code examples explain how to save the Grid content by using the SaveSoap or SaveBinary methods.

C#

MemoryStream s = new MemoryStream();
// Using SaveSoap Method.
gridControl1.Model.SaveSoap(s);
//Set data position to the starting point to load.
s.Position = 0;
gridControl2.Model = GridModel.LoadSoap(s);
//Using SaveBinary Method.
gridControl1.Model.SaveBinary(s);
//Set data position to the starting point to load.
s.Position = 0;
gridControl2.Model = GridModel.LoadBinary(s);

VB

Dim s As New MemoryStream()
'Using SaveSoap Method.
gridControl1.Model.SaveSoap(s)
'Set data position to the starting point to load.
s.Position = 0
gridControl2.Model = GridModel.LoadSoap(s)
'Using SaveBinary Method.
gridControl1.Model.SaveBinary(s)
'Set data position to the starting point to load.
s.Position = 0
gridControl2.Model = GridModel.LoadBinary(s)

Samples:

C#: SaveGridContentInMemory

VB: SaveGridContentInMemory
