LookUpEdit

Expanded Overview

The LookUpEdit control is an advanced dropdown editor. Its dropdown contains a fully-functional data grid. The LookupEdit control supports multiple operation modes.

The LookupEdit control offers the following features.

  • Multiple operation modes

    For a complete list of available operation modes, see LookupEdit operation modes.
  • Embedded GridControl

    The LookupEdit control inherits many of the Data Grid's features including customizable columns collection, data summaries, sorting, grouping and filtering dropdown list data by column values.
  • Token mode

    Token and SearchToken operation modes are inspired by modern mail-clients. These modes support multiple items selection.

    Set the LookUpEdit's BaseEdit.StyleSettings property to the TokenLookUpEditStyleSettings object to enable the Token operation mode.

    For the complete list of LookUpEdit operation modes, see LookUpEdit operation modes.

  • Optional Search field

    To display the Search field within the dropdown, use one of the following LookupEdit operation modes.
    • SearchLookupEdit
    • SearchTokenLookupEdit
  • Optimized for in-place editing

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