Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public bool EnableClientSideAPI { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if the editor’s client object model is fully available; false if no programmatic interface is available for the editor on the client side.


The EnableClientSideAPI property controls the availability of the client-side API for an editor control.

An editor control implements a comprehensive JavaScript-written client-side object model (client API), allowing you to programmatically manipulate the control on the client.

If you want to use the control’s client-side API in your application, set the EnableClientSideAPI property to true, to make sure that the client API is available on the client side.


Regardless of the EnableClientSideAPI property setting, the client-side API is automatically enabled if the EditPropertiesBase.ClientInstanceName (ASPxEditBase.ClientInstanceName) property is defined, or any client event exposed by the ClientSideEvents property is handled.


The EnableClientSideAPI property synchronizes its value with the editor’s ASPxEditBase.EnableClientSideAPI property.
