set customization to true
this will set enable a small button in the top left of the header
allowing you to hide/show columns

ColumnsMoving is to allow the columns to be reordered

is it the grid popup menu / field chooser window you are referencing to ?
> add a cxGridPopupMenu
> set always fire on popup = true
> set grid to your grid

> right click on title column, field chooser

use the way i described
and a cxGridPopUpMenu
and in those properties set grid to your grid

setting AllwaysFireOnPopup can also help

at runtime you right click on a column header and then select field chooser

I had already done this and understood, it is possible to display "field chooser" directly from code inside a button and not by right-clicking on the column?

uh, finally got it
with a little magic:
uses cxGridPopupMenu;

type
  TcxGridPopupMenuHelper = class(TcxGridPopupMenu) end;

procedure TForm1.Button1Click(Sender: TObject);
begin
  TcxGridPopupMenuHelper(YourCxGridPopupMenu).GridOperationHelper.DoShowColumnCustomizing(True);
end;

Open in new window
