Property Value

Type Description

An object that represents the null value.


To specify the text displayed within the edit box when the editor’s value is null, use the BaseEdit.NullText property. Its visibility is specified by the BaseEdit.ShowNullText property.

The following code sample uses the NullValue and NullText properties to display the -= zero =- string for zero values:

<dxe:TextEdit EditValueType="{x:Type sys:Double}"
              MaskType="Numeric" Mask="#,##0.00;(#,##0.00)" 
              NullText="-= zero =-"

Use the TextEditBase.NullTextForeground property to change the null text’s foreground color.
