BaseEdit.IsModified Property

Gets or sets whether the editor’s value has been modified since the editor last received focus or since it was last validated.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public virtual bool IsModified { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if the editor’s value has been modified; otherwise, false.


Whenever the editor has focus and its value changes (an end-user types or deletes a character, the EditValue is changed in code, etc.), the IsModified property is automatically set to true. If an editor validation is successful and the editor accepts its new value, the IsModified property value is set back to false.

This property is used internally by the editor to determine whether the RepositoryItem.Validating event needs to be raised.
