public Control ActiveEditor { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A control that represents the focused cell’s editor. null (Nothing in Visual Basic) if no cell is currently being edited.


Actual editors are only created when end-users start to edit a cell and are automatically destroyed when editing is completed.

When an end-user activates a cell within a column with a custom template, the GridControlBase.ShownEditor event is not raised. Since the GridControlBase.HiddenEditor event is not raised either, the ActiveEditor property value always stays null.
