Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v19.2.dll


public ControlTemplate DisplayTemplate { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A ControlTemplate object representing the editor's template.


Standalone Editor

A standalone editor is always in edit mode. Setting the DisplayTemplate property has no effect. To customize the editor's presentation, use the BaseEdit.EditTemplate property.

In-Place Editor

If the editor is used inplace within a container control (e.g. the grid), its mode depends on whether its owning cell is edited. If a cell is edited, its editor is in edit inplace mode. Otherwise, it is in display mode.

To customize the editor's presentation, create the corresponding templates (display and/or edit template) and assign them to the DisplayTemplate and BaseEdit.EditTemplate properties.

To learn more on inplace editors, see Inplace Editors.

A template that represents the editor's border can be specified using the BaseEdit.BorderTemplate property.
