How to use Doubleclick in Devexpress Gridview in C# and VB.NET

Using doubleclick events in the Devexpress Gridview Control is a simple task.
There are 2 different ways of doing this. The variant you choose, depends on the Gridview’s gridView.OptionsBehavior.Editable property. If this property is set to false you have to use the DoubleClick event. If this property is set to true you have to use the ShownEditor and HiddenEditor event. I will also give an example on how to combine both methods, if you are using both (true and false) on the gridView.OptionsBehavior.Editable.

Samples

OptionsBehavior.Editable set to False

C# Sample

VB.NET Sample

OptionsBehavior.Editable set to True

When inplace editing is enabled, a click on a grid cell activates the inplace editor (rowedit).
All mouse events will be sent to the editor and cannot be handled by the GridView directly. The DoubleClick event handler is no longer being executed.

C# Sample

VB.NET Sample

OptionsBehavior.Editable set to True or False at Runtime
