CardView.IsEditing Property

Gets a value indicating whether a cell editor is presently active.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Card

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v19.1.dll


public override bool IsEditing { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if the View is in edit mode; otherwise, false.


This property returns true if the CardView.State property value is CardState.Editing. In other instances, this property returns false.

You can also compare the View’s ColumnView.ActiveEditor property to null to determine whether a cell editor is presently active.


Detail pattern Views do not contain data and they are never displayed within XtraGrid. So, the IsEditing member must not be invoked for these Views. The IsEditing 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.


The following code shows how you can obtain the text representation of the currently edited cell value.

using DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Base;

ColumnView view = gridControl1.FocusedView as ColumnView;
string editingValue = null;
if (view != null && view.IsEditing)
    editingValue = view.EditingValue.ToString();
