Gets or sets whether an end-user can insert return characters into a text. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Editors

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Core


public bool AcceptsReturn { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true to allow return characters to be accepted and processed by the editor; otherwise, false.


If the AcceptsReturn property is set to true, the ENTER key is processed by the editor, and results in a new text line. Otherwise, if the AcceptsReturn property is set to false, return characters are ignored. Return characters, however, can be inserted in code by adding appropriate characters (for instance, “\r\n” for C#) to the TextEditBase.Text property.
