Property Value

Type Description

An object that represents the data source from which the LookUpEdit retrieves its data.


The LookUpEdit editor cannot operate without a data source. The editor can be bound to any object that implements the IEnumerable interface or its descendant (e.g., IList, ICollection).

When the ItemsSource property value changes, the ItemsSourceChanged event occurs.

The lookup editors support binding to data sources in Server Mode and Instant Feedback UI Mode.
