Namespace: DevExpress.Xpo

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpo.v21.1.dll


public string DisplayableProperties { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

The displayable properties list, containing property paths separated by semicolons. For example, “FirstName;LastName;Company.Name;Address.City”.


The DisplayableProperties property provides a list of the properties that are available for design-time binding. Note that it’s still possible to bind to properties that are not included in the DisplayableProperties list. In this instance, the required property name should be specified (typed) for a control manually in the Property Grid (at design time) or in code.

If an object property represents a persistent object that has nested properties, you can include these nested properties in the DisplayableProperties list. These should be specified in the form: “PropertyName.NestedPropertyName” (for instance, “Address.City”). The number of nested levels is not limited.

When an empty string is assigned, the DisplayableProperties property is actually set to a string that contains all the public properties of the current object.

See Property Descriptors for further details.
