ASPxEditBase.ClientEnabled Property

Gets or sets a value that indicates whether an editor is enabled on the client.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v23.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public bool ClientEnabled { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean true

true if an editor is enabled; otherwise, false.


Use the ClientEnabled property to specify an editor’s ability to respond to user interactions, such as mouse clicks or text input. An editor’s availability state, defined by this property, can then be dynamically changed on the client side using the ASPxClientEditBase.SetEnabled method.


The ClientEnabled property is not in effect if an editor is disabled on the server side by using the server Enabled property.


Values of disabled inputs are not submitted.
