Method Description
InvokeEventHandler(Delegate, Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a way to invoke event handlers in a type-specific way, which can increase efficiency over the base implementation. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
OnSetSource(Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a notification callback entry point whenever the value of the Source property of an instance changes. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.


If you set the EditorShowMode property to MouseUp, the editor’s text is automatically selected when the editor is activated. Otherwise, you can handle the ShownEditor event as follows to automatically select text in the opened editor:

 private void TableView_ShownEditor(object sender, DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.EditorEventArgs e) {
    Dispatcher.BeginInvoke(new Action(() => {
