Property Value

Type Default Description


A ShowDropDown enumeration value.


If the ShowDropDown property value is ShowDropDown.Never, end-users cannot invoke the dropdown by clicking the edit box. This is also not allowed if ShowDropDown is set to ShowDropDown.SingleClick and the RepositoryItemButtonEdit.TextEditStyle value is TextEditStyles.Standard. In this case, single clicks are processed by the edit box to change the caret position and thus do not invoke the editor's popup window. If the ShowDropDown property value is ShowDropDown.DoubleClick, double-clicking the edit box invokes the popup window, regardless of the RepositoryItemButtonEdit.TextEditStyle property value.
