Type Description
DataTemplate

A DataTemplate object that is used to render buttons of the current ButtonEdit.

Remarks

The ButtonTemplate property specifies the data template used to render buttons from the ButtonEdit.ButtonsSource collection.

<dxe:ButtonEdit.ButtonTemplate>
    <DataTemplate>
        <ContentControl>
            <dxe:ButtonInfo 
                Command="{Binding Command}"
                Content="{Binding Content}"
                IsLeft="{Binding IsLeft}" />
        </ContentControl>
    </DataTemplate>
</dxe:ButtonEdit.ButtonTemplate>

If you want to declare several data templates and apply one of them according to your own logic, use the ButtonEdit.ButtonTemplateSelector property.
