Property Value

Type Description

A FindMode enumeration value that specifies the find mode.


If the FindMode property is set to FindMode.Always, the data searching is initiated automatically after a small delay. If the FindMode property is set to FindMode.FindClick, the data searching is initiated on clicking the Find button, pressing ENTER or moving focus from the search panel.

If the FindMode property is set to a null reference, the search mode depends on the editor's type. In a SearchLookUpEdit, data searching is automatically activated. In a LookUpEdit, the search is performed by clicking the Find button (if it is displayed).

When filtering is applied, the content of data cells that satisfies the filter rule is highlighted, as shown in the image below:
