Show the formula in a cell

By default, the formula will be shown in a cell even if it is in edit mode. In order to show the formula in a cell when cell is activated, the ForceEditWhenActivated property can be set as False.


this.gridControl1.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.DblClickOnCell;
GridFormulaCellRenderer.ForceEditWhenActivated = false;



Me.gridControl1.ActivateCurrentCellBehavior = GridCellActivateAction.DblClickOnCell
GridFormulaCellRenderer.ForceEditWhenActivated = False
