Row Edit Modes


This documentation topic describes legacy technology. We no longer develop new functionality for the GridControl and suggest that you use the new DataGridView control instead.

GridControl provides four built-in edit modes that allow end-users to edit grid data. Use the GridControl.RowEditMode property to specify the grid’s edit mode. To open the edit form that corresponds to the specified mode, use the GridControl.OpenEditor method. To close the form, use the GridControl.CloseEditor method.

When an end-user starts to edit a row by double-tapping a data cell or adding a new row, the grid displays an in-place row editor or edit form depending on the set row edit mode.

  • Inplace - an in-place row editor used by default.



  • Popup Edit Form



  • Grid Area - an edit form displayed over the whole grid area.



  • Full Screen Area - an edit form placed on a separate NavigationPage and displayed in the full screen mode.



If you need to implement a custom edit form, assign your template to the GridControl.EditFormContent property.

To prevent end-users from editing data rows, set the GridControl.AllowEditRows property to false.
