BaseView.HideEditor() Method

Hides the currently active editor discarding changes made.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v21.1.dll


public virtual void HideEditor()


The HideEditor method is used to switch the current View from edit to browse mode without saving changes made. This method is automatically called when a user presses the ESC key while editing. The HideEditor method can be useful when it is necessary to close the editor programmatically discarding all changes made.

As implemented in the BaseView class, the HideEditor method performs nothing. It is overridden in derived classes in order to implement proper functionality.


Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the HideEditor member must not be invoked for these Views. The HideEditor member can only be used with real Views that are displayed within the Grid Control. The real Views with which an end-user interacts at runtime can be accessed using the following methods.
