Property Value

Type Description

true to validate the edit value after the ENTER key has been pressed; otherwise, false.


If the ValidateOnEnterKeyPressed property is set to true and the ENTER key is pressed, the editor fires the BaseEdit.Validate event, allowing you to validate a new value.

The BaseEdit.Validate event isn’t raised if the editor’s BaseEdit.CausesValidation property is set to false.

To specify whether an editor’s value should be validated when text is input into it, use the BaseEdit.ValidateOnTextInput property.
