GridView.IsEditing Property

Indicates whether a cell editor is active presently.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraGrid.Views.Grid

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraGrid.v19.2.dll

Declaration

[Browsable(false)]
public override bool IsEditing { get; }
<Browsable(False)>
Public Overrides ReadOnly Property IsEditing As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

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

Remarks

This property returns true if the GridView.State property value is GridState.Editing. Otherwise, false is returned. Note that you can also compare the View's ColumnView.ActiveEditor property value to null (Nothing in Visual Basic) to determine whether a cell editor is currently active.

If the IsEditing property returns true, you can access the current edited value using the GridView.EditingValue property.

NOTE

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.

Examples

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();
