Banded Table View
All the features described in the Table View portion of this web page are available in the Banded Table View. In addition, Banded Table Views offer the following benefits:
- A more logical layout and greater customization options for complex datasets. End-users can hide, show, reorder entire column sets (bands) instead of having to perform the same operation on each individual column. Moreover, Banded Table Views allow you and your end-users to stack bands with ease, arrange column headers and corresponding data cells across multiple rows and also let you create cells that occupy several rows. With a hierarchical band structure, you enable an incredibly flexible way in which to organize data.
- You can anchor one or more bands to a View's left or right edge, which guarantees that these bands are always visible regardless of horizontal scrolling.
Similar to columns in the Table Views, you can toggle the band visibility using the dropdown checklist which can be invoked by clicking the Quick Band Customization button located at the indicator section. With the ExpressQuantumGrid v6, your end-users are also able to reorder bands in a View by dragging the corresponding items in the Quick Band Customization dropdown.
- Additional control over the layout of columns - you can prohibit end-users from moving columns between bands and move bands between their parents.
The data layouts provided by the Banded Table View are extremely useful when you must display a large number of columns on-screen. If you were to use a Table View, you may not be able to fit all the columns on-screen and thus end up truncating data and making your application less readable and more difficult to use.
