BaseEdit.EditTemplate Property

Gets or sets a template that defines the editor's presentation in edit mode. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Editors
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v17.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: ControlTemplate
A System.Windows.Controls.ControlTemplate object representing the editor's template.

Expanded Remarks

Expanded Standalone Editor

A standalone editor is always in edit mode. Setting the DisplayTemplate property has no effect. To customize the editor's presentation, use the EditTemplate property.

Expanded In-Place Editor

If the editor is used inplace within a container control (e.g. the grid), its mode depends on whether its owning cell is edited. If a cell is edited, its editor is in edit inplace mode. Otherwise, it is in display mode.

To customize the editor's presentation, create the corresponding templates (display and/or edit template) and assign them to the DisplayTemplate and EditTemplate properties.

To learn more on inplace editors, see Inplace Editors Overview.

A template that represents the editor's border can be specified using the BorderTemplate property.

Expanded Example

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E1980.

The following example shows how to customize the visual appearance of a standalone editor.
