HowTo: Using SD Paged Grid Control

Official Content
This documentation is valid for:
Deprecated: Since GeneXus 17.
- You can use the Horizontal Grid Control instead.
- If you have a Grid control with its Control Type property = "Paged Grid" in a KB created with a version prior to GeneXus 17, it will continue working but at building time with GeneXus 17 you will see a warning message informing that the control type is deprecated.

This article shows a little example of how this control is used and how it looks in a Smart Device application.

PageControllerBackColor The color of this image.


These properties help you customize how the control looks.

Done! You have a new way to view your list.
