Property Value

Type Description

A string value representing the editor's client value.


Up to version 2010 vol.2, the ClientValue property was useful to obtain the value of the item selected within the editor on the client, on the server side. The following note describes the previous necessity to implement this property.


This property is only intended to be used by a limited number of developers whose projects were affected by the implementation of suggestion S30076. This suggestion's implementation has resulted in a breaking change introduced to the automatic item synchronization mechanism of the ASPxComboBox and ASPxListBox editors.

To learn more on this breaking change, refer to the "ASPxComboBox/ASPxListBox - Automatic item synchronization is now turned off when the Items collection is changed during server-side processing of the PerformCallback method" item within the list of breaking changes introduced in the ASPxGridView and Editors product in version 2009 vol 2.4. This list can be accessed at: Breaking Changes - ASPxGridView and Editors Suite - v2009 vol 2.4.

Starting from version 2010 vol.2, use of the ClientValue property is not necessary sensible, because the ASPxComboBox.Value property can now be used for the same purpose (as a result of implementing suggestion S33399).
