Property Value

Type Description

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


The IsEditing property returns true if the LayoutView.State property’s value is LayoutViewState.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 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.
