Property Value

Type Description

A string value specifying the column cell’s editor name.


The TreeList control gives you the ability to edit cell values by means of specially designed editors from the DevExpress Editors Library (or their descendants). Editors available for the control are stored in the Tree List’s EditorContainer.RepositoryItems property, which represents the internal repository. You can add, delete and adjust items within the repository. See the Inplace Editors topic for details

You can assign editors to columns via the ColumnEditName property. Assigning a value to this property results in searching for the editor with the specified name within the repository. If the editor is found, it is used to edit values of all cells within the column. Otherwise, nothing happens. Note, that if the ColumnEditName property has been successfully assigned, the TreeListColumn.ColumnEdit property is set to the repository item found. On the other hand, if the TreeListColumn.ColumnEdit property is set to a repository item, its name is assigned to the ColumnEditName property.
