Event Data

The ShowingEditor event's data class is DevExpress.Xpf.PropertyGrid.ShowingPropertyGridEditorEventArgs.


The ShowingEditor event is raised before the property editor is activated, allowing you to cancel the action and prevent its value from being edited. To do this, set the event parameter’s Cancel property to false.

See the example below.

private void pGrid_ShowingEditor(object sender, DevExpress.Xpf.PropertyGrid.ShowingPropertyGridEditorEventArgs e) {
            if ((e.Row.Header == "Title") && ((string)pGrid.GetRowValueByRowPath("Group") == "Part-time"))
                e.Cancel = true;
