Property Value

Type Description

A DefaultBoolean enumerator value that specifies whether or not WinForms data-aware controls should use the advanced Filter Editor Control.

Available values:

Name Description

Corresponds to a Boolean value of true.


Corresponds to a Boolean value of false.


The value is determined by the current object’s parent object setting (e.g., a control setting).


This setting specifies whether data-aware controls that have been using the legacy Filter Editor Control (the FilterEditorControl class from the “DevExpress.XtraRichEditv19.1“ library) should switch to its updated version (the FilterEditorControl class from the “DevExpress.DataAccess.v19.1.UI” library).

New Filter Editor Control

The primary difference between two Filter Editor Control versions is their “Text” panel implementation. Most data-aware controls do not display this panel by default (the editor’s ViewMode property is set to Visual), so for your end-users, there is no difference between these two Filter Editor Controls.
