Overview - DropDownEdit

DropDownEdit represents an editor containing an edit box to display the editor value and a specific button, which opens a dropdown window whose content can be templated. The main purpose of DropDownEdit is to allow you to define its value based upon the value(s) of another control(s) integrated into the editor's dropdown window template.

To learn more about DropDownEdit and see it in action, refer to our online demos.

Expanded Implementation Details

DropDownEdit is realized by the DropDownEditExtension class. Its instance can be accessed via the ExtensionsFactory.DropDownEdit helper method, which is used to add a DropDownEdit extension to a view. This method's parameter provides access to the DropDownEdit's settings implemented by the DropDownEditSettings class, allowing you to fully customize the extension.

DropDownEdit's client counterpart is represented by the ASPxClientDropDownEdit object.
