SearchFormShowingEventArgs Class

Provides data for the RichEditControl.SearchFormShowing event.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.v21.1.dll


public class SearchFormShowingEventArgs :


The RichEditControl.SearchFormShowing event occurs before the Find and Replace dialog is invoked. The SearchFormShowingEventArgs class introduces the SearchFormShowingEventArgs.ControllerParameters property that specifies the information to be displayed in the dialog.

Note, that SearchFormShowingEventArgs objects are automatically created, initialized and passed to the RichEditControl.SearchFormShowing event handlers.


This example demonstrates how to replace the standard Find and Replace dialog with a custom one via the RichEditControl.SearchFormShowing event.

private void richEditControl1_SearchFormShowing(object sender, SearchFormShowingEventArgs e)
    string curWord = richEditControl1.Document.GetText(richEditControl1.Document.Selection);
    MySearchTextForm form = new MySearchTextForm(e.ControllerParameters, curWord);
    e.DialogResult = form.ShowDialog();
    e.Handled = true;
