Name Description

Clicking within the text region does not activate the popup window. A popup window appears only when pressing the RepositoryItemPopupBase.CloseUpKey key or Alt + DownArrow key, or calling the editor’s PopupBaseEdit.ShowPopup method.


A popup window is activated when a user clicks within the text region of a control.


A popup window is activated when a user double-clicks within the text region of a control.

Note: the value is in effect when the RepositoryItemButtonEdit.TextEditStyle property is set to TextEditStyles.Standard as well.


The ShowDropDown property is supported in the TouchUI mode (see RepositoryItemTimeEdit.TimeEditStyle), where the TimeEdit control provides a dropdown window for editing time values. See the base RepositoryItemPopupBase.ShowDropDown property to learn more.
