Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public virtual object EditValue { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Object null

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.


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));


The following example uses the EditValue property to select the first lookup row in a LookUpEdit control.


private void btnSelectRow_Click(object sender, EventArgs e) {
    lookUpEdit1.EditValue = lookUpEdit1.Properties.GetDataSourceValue(lookUpEdit1.Properties.KeyMember, 0);
