Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v23.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public class MemoExEdit :


The MemoExEdit control allows users to edit multi-line memo text. It provides a MemoExEdit.Lines property defining the list of strings displayed by the editor. The editor is derived from the BlobBaseEdit class and thus, inherits all the functionality related to managing the popup window and editing BLOB data. This functionality includes specifying the editor button that opens the dropdown window, popup window resizing, etc.

The dropdown window displays the “OK” and “Cancel” buttons. The “OK” button posts any changes and closes the popup window. If no changes have been made since opening the popup window, the “OK” button is disabled. The “Cancel” button cancels the changes made and closes the popup window.


You can use the RepositoryItemMemoExEdit.WordWrap option (accessible from the MemoExEdit.Properties property) to specify whether long strings are wrapped automatically at the right edge of the editor’s popup window. To specify the scroll bar visibility, use the RepositoryItemMemoExEdit.ScrollBars property.

The RepositoryItemMemoExEdit.AcceptsReturn and RepositoryItemMemoExEdit.AcceptsTab properties define how the MemoExEdit editor interprets the ENTER and TAB keys when they are pressed within the popup window.
