Property Value

Type Description

An object representing the current View’s current object.

The example below demonstrates how to set a Contact‘s FirstName value to the NickName property via a SimpleAction.

using DevExpress.ExpressApp;
using DevExpress.ExpressApp.Actions;
using DevExpress.Persistent.Base;
using MainDemo.Module.BusinessObjects;
// ...
public class SetNickNameController : ViewController {
    public SetNickNameController() {
        SimpleAction setNickNameAction = new SimpleAction(this, "SetNickName", PredefinedCategory.Edit);
        setNickNameAction.Execute += SetNickNameAction_Execute;
    }
    private void SetNickNameAction_Execute(object sender, SimpleActionExecuteEventArgs e) {
        Contact currentObject = View.CurrentObject as Contact;
        if(currentObject != null) {
            currentObject.NickName = currentObject.FirstName;
        }
    }
}

This property returns null and is intended to be overridden in View descendants. See ListView.CurrentObject and DetailView.CurrentObject.
