Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Editors
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v19.2.dll

Property value

Type: Boolean
true, to select the text on focus via keyboard; otherwise, false.

Expanded Remarks

Set the SelectAllOnGotFocus property to true to enable automatic text selection when the editor gets focus via the keyboard. To enable text selection when the editor gets focus via mouse click, set the SelectAllOnMouseUp to true.
