Property Value

Type Description

A string value specifying the error description.


The ErrorText property specifies the error hint text. The hint is displayed if the BaseContainerValidateEditorEventArgs.Valid property is set to false. Note that, in this case, the cell that failed validation displays an error icon. Pointing to that icon displays the error hint again.

Note: you can override the behavior described using the InvalidValueException event of a control you are using. In this case, the ErrorText property value specifies the initial value of that event’s ErrorText parameter.
