public SearchControl OwnerEdit { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

A SearchControl editor that owns the current repository item.


The OwnerEdit property returns the editor that owns the current repository item. You can use this property, for instance, to return the edit value. 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 the 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. In this case, the OwnerEdit property returns null (Nothing in Visual Basic), because no editor is currently associated.
