NuGet Package: DevExpress.Blazor


public string EditFormat { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

The format pattern.


Use the EditFormat property to format an editor’s tag text. This property allows you to format text of the tags displayed in ordinary (one-column) and multi-column TagBoxes.


When you enable filter mode for a multi-column TagBox, the filter only takes into account data of the columns that are used in the editor’s format pattern.

The code below adds three columns to a TagBox and applies the {1} {2} format to the component’s tag values. This format specifies that the tag text should include values of the Name (VisibleIndex = 1) and Surname (VisibleIndex = 2) columns.

<DxTagBox Data="@Staff.DataSource"
          EditFormat="{1} {2}">
    <DxListEditorColumn FieldName="Id" Width="50px" />
    <DxListEditorColumn FieldName="FirstName" Caption="Name"/>
    <DxListEditorColumn FieldName="LastName" Caption="Surname"/>

@code {
    IEnumerable<Person> SelectedStaff { get; set; } = new List<Person>() { Staff.DataSource[0] };

TagBox - Multiple Columns

If the EditFormat property’s value is not specified, the TextFieldName property specifies an editor’s tag text.
