Property Value

Type Description

A FindMode enumeration value that specifies the find mode.


Use the FindMode property, to specify how data searching should be initiated - automatically after a small delay or manually on clicking the Find button or pressing ENTER.

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:
