Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A String value that specifies the data source field whose values are displayed by the editor.


To bind the editor to a data source, use its LookUpEditBase.ItemsSource property. The DisplayMember and LookUpEditBase.ValueMember properties specify the field names in a data source that supply display strings and item values, respectively.

You can use the SubstituteDisplayFilter event to customize the filter applied by the LookUpEdit or ComboBoxEdit (for example, to filter data by an additional property).


When the DisplayMember and ValueMember properties are specified, the ComboBoxEdit allows users to enter only the values from its ItemsSource.
