Survey (~1min): Default location of the Reset View Settings Action - YOUR FEEDBACK IS NEEDED!!!

This command is provided by the standard ResetViewSettingsController and resets all the user customizations of the View's model. It may be helpful when your client customized a lot and was stuck getting things to normal. Due to this scenario the command is available in the main menu toolbar or ribbon by default (+additionally duplicated in context menu in WinForms).

However, we wanted to hear the XAF community thoughts on this default design after receiving several user requests in this regard (examples: onetwo, three). As of now, we have no easy capability to know real usages and customizations of XAF Actions in end client apps, so we would greatly appreciate it if you participate in this and coming surveys. Thanks for your help in advance.

In fact, we already asked our user preferences when this feature was in development, but did not receive much feedback back then to hide this command from the main menu by default.


  1. i just completed the survey Dennis. We use for years now a solution where we add a menu item to the column header popup menu. in detailviews it is not needed since there is already an reset layout command. for listviews without columns i personaly have no usecase as chart and pivot also already have an reset settings command
