ParameterInfo Class

Represents a class containing information about a specific parameter and its editor.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraReports.Parameters

Assembly: DevExpress.Printing.v23.1.Core.dll

NuGet Packages: DevExpress.Printing.Core, DevExpress.Win.Dashboard.Design


public class ParameterInfo


The ParameterInfo class provides access to the ParameterInfo.Parameter, for which the XtraReport.ParametersRequestBeforeShow or XtraReport.ParametersRequestSubmit event is raised, as well as the capability to access or change the ParameterInfo.Editor, which is used to enter the parameter’s value when an end-user is asked for report parameters.


This example illustrates how to change the standard editor displayed in Print Preview for a report parameter with a custom one.


Print Preview displays default value editors according to report parameter types (their Parameter.Type property values).

A custom editor specified in this example is used only for demonstration purposes, because a LookUpEdit is automatically assigned to parameters for which the ReportParameter.LookUpValues property is specified.

Handle the XtraReport.ParametersRequestBeforeShow event and assign a custom editor to the ParameterInfo.Editor property of the ParameterInfo object stored in the ParametersRequestEventArgs.ParametersInformation collection to provide a custom report parameter editor in a WinForms application.

            LookUpEdit lookUpEdit = new LookUpEdit();
            lookUpEdit.Properties.DataSource = dataSet.Categories;
            lookUpEdit.Properties.DisplayMember = "CategoryName";
            lookUpEdit.Properties.ValueMember = "CategoryID";
                LookUpColumnInfo("CategoryName", 0, "Category Name"));
            info.Editor = lookUpEdit;
