Type Description

A string value specifying the editor’s formatted display text.


Initially the DisplayText property depends on the RepositoryItem.EditFormat or RepositoryItem.DisplayFormat property value, depending on whether the editor is focused.

You can change the display text as required and thus override the default text representation. The edit value to be formatted is passed as the QueryDisplayTextEventArgs.EditValue property.
