GridView.GetFocusedDisplayText() Method

Returns the focused cell’s display value.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Grid


public override string GetFocusedDisplayText()


Type Description

A string representing the text displayed within the View’s focused cell.


If a group row is currently focused the GetFocusedDisplayText method returns the string which represents the text displayed by the group row (the same value as the one returned by the GridView.GetGroupRowDisplayText method). Otherwise, this method returns the text representation of the currently focused cell’s value. The returned string is formatted as specified by the GridColumn.DisplayFormat property of the focused column.

The focused cell in a Grid View is identified by the ColumnView.FocusedRowHandle and ColumnView.FocusedColumn properties.


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