Getting Editor Values

Editors from Data Editors Extensions provide specific server and client methods, allowing you to access an editor's edited value.


  • On the Server Side - Use the static DevExpress.Web.Mvc.EditorExtension.GetValue``1 method to access the value of a specific editor.

    This method is intended to be used within Controllers. It requires you to specify the name of an editor whose value is to be obtained (SettingsBase.Name) and indicate the type of the returned value.

    The simplest overload of the GetValue method allows you to obtain an editor's value in the following manner:

    Controller code ("HomeController.cs"):
