Updateable Dashboard Check All Button in GridView

I have an updateable dashboard with a user defined field. “Packed_c”
I would like to add a button to check all Rows with Packed_c = true.

I have seen a post that suggests a UI Customization over the Deployed Dashboard.
I am unable to get the code to work.


Create a UI customization on your deployed dashboard assembly.

        if (MessageBox.Show(msg, "Select all the jobs", MessageBoxButtons.YesNo, MessageBoxIcon.Information) == DialogResult.Yes)
            ChangeAll(myGrid.Rows, true);

    public void ChangeAll(RowsCollection row, bool val)
        foreach (UltraGridRow r in row)
            if (r.GetType() == typeof(UltraGridGroupByRow))
                ChangeAll(((UltraGridGroupByRow)r).Rows, val);
                r.Cells["OrderRel_Packed_c"].Value = val; /* change to whatever column you are updating for selection */


Get an error on RowsCollection

Any Suggestions on what I am missing?

What is the exact error you are getting?

Error: CS0246 - line 82 (188) - The type or namespace name ‘RowsCollection’ could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)

Add this using at the top

using Infragistics.Win.UltraWinGrid;

Thank You!! THAT DID IT! :smiley:


I have done something similar in terms of updating multiple rows in a grid. In my example I am allowing the operator to update the order release ship via. So the code actually looks for the order number on the selected row and then loops through the grid updating the shipvia code for all rows where the order number matches. This is working perfectly until the grid is grouped at which point it fails with an Object reference not set to an instance of an object. error. Do we need to handle grids differently if groups are introduced?

Actually I think I have resolved my issue here. I updated the data view instead of the grid. So I get the order number from the selected row in the grid and then update matching records in the view.

Seems to work

Hi Michael,

where do you get the value “589716ee-c705-4062-9288-a2cc6a726587” that you use in the csm.GetNativeControlReference() method?

Thank you,


I will have to check that out and get back to you.

I know its in the customization though

I actually found it a few minutes after I sent this. It is in the properties tab of the customization. Thanks for following up.

In the customization screen choose the tab you want to update

You will see it here.

Then you will see it in the properties window

Where are you getting the GUID for the EpiUltraGrid? Can this be used on the standard Summary Grid or do you need to buld a custom UltraGrid? I am trying to do something similar to check all the checkboxes in the Summary Grid with a select all button.

I believe it must be a custom grid
