Assembly: DevExpress.Web.Mvc5.v21.1.dll


public ASPxVerticalGridEditorEventHandler CellEditorInitialize { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A ASPxVerticalGridEditorEventHandler delegate method allowing you to implement custom processing.


The CellEditorInitialize event is raised when the VerticalGrid is switched to edit mode and enables you to initialize cell editors.


  • Since the CellEditorInitialize event works correctly only when a request is sent to the server to initialize an editor, this event will not be raised after you start editing a new row in Batch edit mode because in this mode, requests are not sent to the server when an editor is activated.
  • The CellEditorInitialize event affects only the edit mode settings (when editors are visible).
  • The CellEditorInitialize event isn’t raised for edit cells that contain custom editors defined using templates.
  • The CellEditorInitialize event fires only for built-in column editors.


The following example illustrates how to use the CellEditorInitialize event to automatically focus the required column’s editor using the editor’s ASPxWebControl.Focus method (the e.Editor event argument).

settings.CellEditorInitialize = (s, e) => {
    if (e.Column.FieldName == "TimeFrom")
