public LookUpEdit OwnerEdit { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A LookUpEdit control owning the current repository item.


The OwnerEdit property returns the editor owning 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.

Every edit control has a Properties property representing a repository item object. Repository items store settings specific to corresponding editors and provide them when creating inplace editors (e.g. for an Grid Control column). Thus, every editor owns a repository item.

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