Editor Operation Modes

Overview

DevExpress WPF Data Editors support various operation modes. Each operation mode provides additional functionality that is specific to the chosen editor. For instance, Item Selection controls (e.g., ListBox, ComboBox) have switchable selection modes, while Visualization controls (e.g., Sparkline) can display the same data in different ways.

To change the editor's operation mode, assign an appropriate object to the editor's BaseEdit.StyleSettings property.

NOTE

The BaseEdit.StyleSettings property described in this section is not related to the Style property and has a different purpose.

The image below demonstrates a combo box put into various selection modes.
