RepositoryItemPopupContainerEdit.QueryDisplayText Event

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public event QueryDisplayTextEventHandler QueryDisplayText

Event Data

The QueryDisplayText event's data class is QueryDisplayTextEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
DisplayText Gets or sets the text to display in the edit box.
EditValue Gets the current edit value.


The QueryDisplayText event is raised each time the editor needs to update its display value. Handle the event to provide the display text manually. To do so, assign the desired string to the QueryDisplayTextEventArgs.DisplayText property value. The QueryDisplayTextEventArgs.EditValue property lets you identify the editor value which is to be formatted.

Generally, if you handle the QueryDisplayText event, you will set the RepositoryItemPopupContainerEdit.TextEditStyle property to TextEditStyles.DisableTextEditor. Otherwise, the user input may interfere with your custom display text.

The editor’s PopupContainerEdit.QueryDisplayText event is equivalent to the current event.
