DxListBox<TData, TValue>.ValuesExpression Property

Specifies a lambda expression that identifies the Values property’s bound values when the List Box is placed in the EditForm.

Namespace: DevExpress.Blazor

Assembly: DevExpress.Blazor.v21.1.dll

Declaration

[Parameter]
public Expression<Func<IEnumerable<TValue>>> ValuesExpression { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description
Expression<Func<IEnumerable<TValue>>>

A lambda expression that identifies bound values.

Remarks

You can add the List Box editor to Blazor’s standard EditForm component to validate the Values property value. In this case, the ValuesExpression property is used to obtain metadata about values bound to the Values property.

You should specify the ValuesExpression property if you handle the ValuesChanged event and cannot use two-way binding.

<DxListBox Data="@Strings" ...
          Values="@values"
          ValuesExpression="@(() => values )"
          ValuesChanged="@ValuesChanged">
</DxListBox>

@code {
    IEnumerable<string> values = null;
    // ...
    void ValuesChanged(IEnumerable<string> MyStrings) {
        // ...
    }
}

The ValuesExpression property is set internally if you use the @bind attribute for the Values property to implement two-way binding.

<DxListBox Data="@Strings" ...
          @bind-Values="@Values">
</DxListBox>

@code {
    IEnumerable<string> newValues = null;
    IEnumerable<string> Values { get => newValues; set { newValues = value; InvokeAsync(StateHasChanged); } }
    // ...
}

The following exception occurs if you do not use two-way binding or the ValuesExpression property:

DevExpress.Blazor.DxListBox requires a value for the ‘ValuesExpression’ property. It is specified automatically when you use two-way binding (‘bind-Value’).
