Tips & Tricks - WinForms Data Grid Custom Footer Checkbox

Thinking Out Loud
27 April 2017
Came across a great question/request on the DevExpress Support Forum and wanted to share it with those of you using our WinForms Data Grid.

To summarize, Jude wanted to position a checkbox with the Grid's footer. Though I've never personally considered using the footer for record select operations, it's definitely an option.... 
As you'll discover when reading the support ticket, this capability is not available out-of-the-box BUT it's easy to implement with just a bit of custom draw.

New Feature?

My question to  all of you is whether we should incorporate this capability within the grid - do you see yourself using the footer in this manner or do you feel the footer should remain dedicated to summary computations.
