System.ArgumentNullException: 'X' requires a value for the 'Expression' property

If your EditForm contains an editor that does not use two-way binding, one of the following exceptions can occur:

DevExpress.Blazor.DxComboBox requires a value for the ‘ValueExpression’ property. It is specified automatically when you use two-way binding (‘bind-Value’).
InvalidOperationException: A value for the ‘ValuesExpression’ and ‘TextExpression’ properties not found.

To fix the issue, do one of the following:

  • Specify the Expression property for the properties you use. For example, if you use the Value property and the ValueChanged event separately, also specify the ValueExpression property.
    <DxComboBox Data="@Strings"
        ValueChanged="@((string s) => ValueChanged())"
        ValueExpression="@(() => Value)">
  • Implement the two-way binding in the EditForm.
