NuGet Package: DevExpress.Data


public virtual bool CanExecute()


Type Description

true if the command can execute; otherwise, false.


UI controls that support commands (such as Bar Items) disable the control if the CanExecute is false. A command will only execute if the CanExecute is true. In case you want to execute an action if the command cannot be executed, use the Command.ForceExecute method instead of the Command.Execute.
