BaseView.ShowEditorByMouse() Method

Activates an editor for the focused row cell and passes a mouse click to it.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v19.2.dll


public virtual void ShowEditorByMouse()
Public Overridable Sub ShowEditorByMouse


The ShowEditorByMouse method is called automatically when a cell is clicked. It makes use of the BaseView.ShowEditor method to activate the cell's inplace editor. If the editor has been invoked successfully, a mouse click is passed to it for processing. Please refer to the CardView.ShowEditor and GridView.ShowEditor method descriptions for details on when the focused cell's editor cannot be invoked.

This method is used internally. Generally, you will have no need to use it in your applications.
