A string that specifies the editor name.

Property Paths

You can access this nested property as listed below:

Object Type Path to EditorName
.EditOptions .EditorName


If a control’s EditOptions.Enabled property is set to true and the EditOptions.ReadOnly option is disabled, its content can be changed in Print Preview using an in-place editor invoked after clicking the corresponding field.

By default, the EditorName property is not specified, and a memo edit is used as a standard editor.

Use the EditorName property to assign a required editor to a control. All available editors are listed by the EditingFieldEditorNames class and are divided into three categories: Numeric, Date-Time and Letters.


If required, you can implement custom editors and add them to an existing or custom category.
