Property Value

Type Description

An object that implements the IValueConverter interface.


The editor displays formatted text if the editor value is not being edited (for example, if the editor is not focused or it is read-only). You can use DevExpress Converters or create a custom converter (that implements the IValueConverter interface) to format displayed text.

The following code sample contains a TextEdit bound to a Boolean field. The DisplayTextConverter property displays Yes/No values instead of True/False:

<dxe:TextEdit EditValue="{Binding IsChecked}"
              DisplayTextConverter="{dxmvvm:BooleanToObjectConverter TrueValue=Yes, FalseValue=No}"/>

Refer to the following help topic for more information about the DisplayTextConverter property in in-place mode: Format Cell Values - DisplayTextConverter.
