TableView.EditFormShowing Event

Occurs when the Table View is about to display the Edit Form.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.v21.2.dll


public event EventHandler<EditFormShowingEventArgs> EditFormShowing

Event Data

The EditFormShowing event's data class is EditFormShowingEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Allow Gets or sets a value that indicates whether to show the edit form.
RowHandle Gets the handle of the row that raised the event.


In v21.2+, handle the RowEditStarting, RowEditStarted, and RowEditFinished events to process how a user interacts with the Edit Form. You can also create commands in a View Model and bind them to the RowEditStartingCommand, RowEditStartedCommand, and RowEditFinishedCommand properties.

The EditFormShowing event allows you to cancel the operation (suppress the Edit Form). The following example disables the Edit Form for odd rows:

private void TableView_EditFormShowing(object sender, DevExpress.Xpf.Grid.EditFormShowingEventArgs e) {
    if(e.RowHandle % 2 != 0) {
        e.Allow = false;
