Property Value

Type Description

A String value that specifies the editor’s display text.


By default, the text displayed within the editor is specified by the Text property. The BaseEdit.DisplayFormatString property can be used to format it (e.g. to display a currency amount).

It is also possible to display a custom text within the editor. To do this, the BaseEdit.CustomDisplayText event should be handled.

The DisplayText property returns the string currently displayed within the editor.
