Object Type Path to EditingMode


You can set the mode in which an end-user can edit grid data via the EditingMode property of the GridEditingMode type.

  • Default and Inplace - Directly in grid cells.
  • Edit Form - In an Edit Form displayed as a modal window.


  • EditFormInplace - In an Edit Form displayed below the row being edited.


  • EditFormInplaceHideCurrentRow - In an Edit Form displayed instead of the row being edited.



If there is insufficient space in the View to display an Edit Form as an inline panel, it is forcibly displayed as a separate modal window.


Detail Views do not support an inline Edit Form. Data in these Views can only be edited inplace (in row cells), or using a popup Edit Form.

For more information, see the Modify and Validate Cell Values topic.
