Gets or sets an object that specifies the cell editor for the current property definition. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.PropertyGrid

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.PropertyGrid.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public BaseEditSettings EditSettings { get; set; }
Public Property EditSettings As BaseEditSettings

Property Value

Type Description
BaseEditSettings

A BaseEditSettings descendant that specifies the cell editor.

Remarks

Cell values are edited using editors that ship with the WPF Data Editors. Each editor has a helper class (the BaseEditSettings descendant), responsible for the editor's functionality. When the same editor is used in multiple locations, the property grid uses this helper class to paint its cells. The actual editor is only created when an end user starts editing a cell and is automatically destroyed when editing is completed.

Use the EditSettings property to assign the required editor. PropertyGridControl automatically assigns editors to the edit fields based on the corresponding property type. To learn more, see Property Definitions.

The following example demonstrates how to assign editors to property grid rows based on the property path and type.

xmlns:sys="clr-namespace:System;assembly=mscorlib"
...
<Window.DataContext>
    <local:ViewModel/>
</Window.DataContext>
...
<dxprg:PropertyGridControl SelectedObject="{Binding Data}" ShowProperties="All">
    <dxprg:PropertyDefinition Path="ID" IsReadOnly="True"/>
    <dxprg:PropertyDefinition Type="sys:DateTime">
        <dxprg:PropertyDefinition.EditSettings>
            <dxe:DateEditSettings DisplayFormat="MMM-dd-yyyy"/>
        </dxprg:PropertyDefinition.EditSettings>
    </dxprg:PropertyDefinition>
    <dxprg:PropertyDefinition Type="sys:String">
        <dxprg:PropertyDefinition.EditSettings>
            <dxe:TextEditSettings MaxLength="15"/>
        </dxprg:PropertyDefinition.EditSettings>
    </dxprg:PropertyDefinition>
</dxprg:PropertyGridControl>
