ShowFormEventArgs Class

Serves as the base for classes which provide data for the events which occur before the RichEditControl dialogs are shown.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.v21.1.dll


public class ShowFormEventArgs :


Events which use the ShowFormEventArgs class descendants occur before different RichEditControl dialogs are invoked. The ShowFormEventArgs class introduces the ShowFormEventArgs.DialogResult property, that specifies the return value of a dialog, the ShowFormEventArgs.Handled property that specifies whether an event was handled and the ShowFormEventArgs.Parent property that specifies a parent of the form being shown.


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;
