RepositoryItemLookUpEdit() Constructor

Creates and initializes a new instance of the RepositoryItemLookUpEdit class.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v20.1.dll


public RepositoryItemLookUpEdit()
Public Sub New


The constructor creates a new RepositoryItemLookUpEdit class instance and sets its properties to their default values.

When a LookUpEdit control is created, the current constructor is automatically invoked to initialize the control's LookUpEdit.Properties object. Generally, you do not need to call the RepositoryItemLookUpEdit constructor unless you have to create lookup editors for inplace editing within container controls such as the XtraGrid.


This example shows how to use an in-place LookUpEdit control (RepositoryItemLookUpEdit) for editing cells in a grid column.The lookup editor in the example is used to edit the CategoryID field values from the Products list. However, instead of displaying category IDs, the editor will display corresponding category names in the edit box.The main properties used to set up the LookUpEdit control are:- DataSource - Specifies the lookup data source.- ValueMember - Specifies the field from the lookup data source whose values match the editor's edit value.- DisplayMember - Identifies the field from the lookup data source whose values match the editor's display text.

The following image shows the result.

        static void Main() {
            Application.Run(new Form1());
