Specifies the caption or index of the desired grid column.

The index is zero-based and corresponds to the column’s position within the object's internal columns collection rather than the column’s visible position in the object.

The caption can contain asterisk (*) or question mark (?) wildcards or regular expressions. The asterisk corresponds to a string of any length, the question mark corresponds to any single character. To specify more complicated parts of a caption, use regular expressions.

The caption can be case-sensitive or case-insensitive depending on the value of the Use case-sensitive parameters project setting.

Property Value
