In-place Editor Repository Page

  • 2 minutes to read

The In-place Editor Repository page enables you to manage the grid control's internal repository (i.e., customize the collection of in-place editors). This page provides access to the control's EditorContainer.RepositoryItems collection. For detailed information on using repositories, see Modify and Validate Cell Values.

This page is shown in the image below.

The repository items collection can be managed using the buttons located at the top of the page. These buttons are described below.

  • Add - creates a new repository item of a particular type and adds it to the repository. The type of the repository item is displayed in the button.

    RIAddButton

    The Down Arrow button invokes a dropdown that contains a list of available repository item types (see the image below). Once the desired item has been selected, it is added to the repository, and its type is displayed on the Add button.

  • Remove - removes the selected repository item from the repository. The editor can be removed from the collection if it is not assigned to a column.
  • Remove Unused - removes all editors that are not assigned to columns.

Once a repository item has been added to the repository, its name and type are displayed within the repository items list (see the top image). The selected item's settings can be changed using the property grid.
