Public Class ParametrizedAction
    Inherits ActionBase


The ParametrizedAction class inherits the basic functionality of Actions from the ActionBase class. Parametrized Actions are used to execute custom code, when an end-user enters a value into the Action's editor. This value is accessed via the ParametrizedAction.Value property. By default, this value is of the string type. You can specify another type for entered values via the ParametrizedAction.ValueType property (integer or DateTime). For each type, the appropriate control is displayed for the Action.


For some types of a Parametrized Action's values, Action Containers cannot create an appropriate control. In this instance, you will have to implement a special Action Container.

To execute custom code when an end-user inputs a value to the Action's editor, handle the ParametrizedAction.Execute event. To access the entered value, use the handler's ParametrizedActionExecuteEventArgs.ParameterCurrentValue parameter.

To add a Parametrized Action to a Controller, drag and drop the ParametrizedAction item from the XAF Actions section on the Toolbox to the required Controller's Designer area (see Add a Parametrized Action).
