Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public ButtonEdit OwnerEdit { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A ButtonEdit control owning the current repository item.


The OwnerEdit property returns the editor, which owns the current repository item. You can use the OwnerEdit property to return the edit value, for instance. For this purpose, see the editor’s BaseEdit.EditValue property.

In the current object model, every edit control has a Properties property representing a repository item object. Repository items are designed to store settings specific to corresponding editors and provide them for creating inplace editors (in XtraGrid, for instance). Thus, every editor owns the repository item, which stores specific settings.

However, a repository item object can exist without an edit control. This is true for standalone repository items used to create inplace editors. The OwnerEdit property in this case returns null because no editor is currently associated with these items.
