GridView.HideEditor() Method

Hides the active editor discarding any changes made.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v24.1.dll

NuGet Packages: DevExpress.Win.Grid, DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public override void HideEditor()


The HideEditor method destroys the edited cell’s editor and switches the View to browse mode. Changes made within the edited cell are discarded. The HideEditor method is automatically called when an end-user presses the ESC key after modifying the cell’s value. Note that calling this method raises the ColumnView.HiddenEditor event.

If no cell is being edited at the present moment, calling the HideEditor method does nothing.

Please refer to the Modify and Validate Cell Values topic for additional information.


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 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.
