Predefined

RadListView gives you the opportunity to specify custom layouts and thus display your data in any preferable way. In addition, as a greater convenience to the developer, the control offers six predefined layouts that enable you to display your data as a/an:

  • Grid

  • Unordered list

  • Ordered list

  • Flow pattern

  • Single row pattern

  • Floated tiles

In order to take advantage of this feature of RadListView's you need to use the smart tag control designer and pick the Open Configuration Wizard option:
Open Layout Editor

The designer will open a Configuration Manager window where you can adjust two types of options:

  • Functionality

  • Layouts and Appearance

In order to use the predefined layouts, you should choose the second option:
Layouts and Appearance

After a layout has been chosen the designer will automatically generate the necessary mark-up and binding expressions. Below is the auto-generated mark-up for the Grid layout of a ListView bound to the Employees table of the the Northwind database:
