BlobBaseEdit Class

Represents the base class for editors that work with binary large object (BLOB) data.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v19.1.dll


public abstract class BlobBaseEdit :


The abstract BlobBaseEdit class represents the base class for editors used to contain BLOB data and display its representation (text or image) within the popup window. It implements the basic functionality for the MemoExEdit and ImageEdit editors.

Note that the BlobBaseEdit class is derived from the PopupBaseEdit class and, thus, inherits all the functionality related to popup window management.

The BlobBaseEdit.Properties property of the BlobBaseEdit class provides access to a RepositoryItemBlobBaseEdit object providing settings common to BLOB editors. Descendants of the BlobBaseEdit class provide RepositoryItemBlobBaseEdit descendants to represent their repository items. Each descendant introduces a particular functionality specific to editor type and inherits common BLOB editor settings.

You should not create instances of the BlobBaseEdit class directly. Use it as the base class when creating custom editors that must work with BLOB data.
