Property Value

Type Description

A BaseEdit object that represents a custom editor for the dialog box.


Use the Editor property to provide an editor for the dialog box. To specify the text displayed above the dialog box editor, use the XtraInputBoxArgs.Prompt property.

The code snippet below shows how to display the dialog box using custom arguments.

// initialize a new XtraInputBoxArgs instance 
XtraInputBoxArgs args = new XtraInputBoxArgs();
// set required Input Box options 
args.Caption = "Shipping options";
args.Prompt = "Delivery date";
args.DefaultButtonIndex = 0;
// initialize a DateEdit editor with custom settings 
DateEdit editor = new DateEdit();
editor.Properties.CalendarView = DevExpress.XtraEditors.Repository.CalendarView.TouchUI;
editor.Properties.Mask.EditMask = "MMMM d, yyyy";
args.Editor = editor;
// a default DateEdit value 
args.DefaultResponse = DateTime.Now.Date.AddDays(3);
// display an Input Box with the custom editor 
var result = XtraInputBox.Show(args).ToString();

When an end-user clicks "OK" or "Yes", the XtraInputBox.Show method returns an Object that is the editor's edit value. Otherwise, the method returns null (Nothing in VB).
