An object representing the editor’s value.

Setting this property to a new value raises the RepositoryItem.EditValueChanging event. The RepositoryItem.EditValueChanged event fires after the EditValue property value has been changed.

Use the BaseEdit.Text property to obtain the editor’s text representation of this value.

Example

The following example binds a CalcEdit editor to the Freight field in a data source (OrdersBindingSource).

calcEdit1.DataBindings.Add(new System.Windows.Forms.Binding("EditValue", ordersBindingSource, "Freight", true));

Example

    lookUpEdit1.EditValue = lookUpEdit1.Properties.GetDataSourceValue(lookUpEdit1.Properties.KeyMember, 0);
