RepositoryItemTextEdit.ValidateOnEnterKey Property

Gets or sets whether to raise the RepositoryItem.Validating event on pressing the ENTER key.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation

Declaration

[DefaultValue(false)]
[DXCategory("Behavior")]
public virtual bool ValidateOnEnterKey { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true to raise the RepositoryItem.Validating event on pressing the ENTER key; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Set the editor’s CausesValidation property to true to enable input validation (and raise the RepositoryItem.Validating event). If the ValidateOnEnterKey property is set to false, validation occurs only when the focus moves to another control.

Note

Popup (dropdown) editors raise the Validating event on pressing the ENTER key if their edit box is focused. A popup editor does not raise the Validating event when the ENTER key is pressed if the focus is in the dropdown.
