Add a new column

To add a new column into WinForms GridListControl, the ‘QueryColCount’ event can be used. `QueryCellInfo` event is used for assigning the cell values for the newly added columns.


private void Grid_QueryColCount(object sender, GridRowColCountEventArgs e)
    e.Count = 3;
    e.Handled = true;
private void Grid_QueryCellInfo(object sender, GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs e)
    if (e.RowIndex > 0 && e.ColIndex == 3)
        e.Style.CellValue = "testc";
    if (e.RowIndex == 0 && e.ColIndex==3)
        e.Style.CellValue = "Col name";



Private Me.gridListControl1.Grid.QueryColCount+= AddressOf Grid_QueryColCount
Private Me.gridListControl1.Grid.QueryCellInfo+= AddressOf Grid_QueryCellInfo
Private Sub Grid_QueryColCount(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridRowColCountEventArgs)
 e.Count = 3
 e.Handled = True
End Sub
Private Sub Grid_QueryCellInfo(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As GridQueryCellInfoEventArgs)
 If e.RowIndex > 0 AndAlso e.ColIndex = 3 Then
  e.Style.CellValue = "testc"
 End If
 If e.RowIndex = 0 AndAlso e.ColIndex=3 Then
  e.Style.CellValue = "Col name"
 End If
End Sub
