Expanded Overview

The MemoEdit control is a dropdown text editor.

The MemoEdit control offers the following features.

  • Optional Enter and Tab key processing

    If the MemoEdit.MemoAcceptsReturn and MemoEdit.MemoAcceptsTab properties are set to true, MemoEdit processes the Enter and Tab key presses.

  • Resizable popup

    End-users can resize a MemoEdit popup at runtime using the size grip. The MemoEdit's PopupBaseEdit.ShowSizeGrip property controls the availability of the size grip.

  • Optional popup footer buttons

    Use the PopupBaseEdit.PopupFooterButtons property to control the availability of the footer buttons.

  • Optional word wrapping

    Use the MemoEdit.MemoTextWrapping property to automatically break the lines between words.

  • Optional icon

    You can control the visibility of the memo icon using the MemoEdit.ShowIcon property.

  • Optimized for in-place editing

    MemoEdit can be used standalone or as an in-place editor nested in a container control. The MemoEditSettings class implements the in-place editing functionality. See In-place Editors to learn more.
