BarContainerControl.ContainerType Property

Gets or sets the type of the current container. This is a dependency property.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Bars
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v18.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: BarContainerType
A BarContainerType value that specifies the type of the current container.

Expanded Remarks

Use the ContainerType property to specify the type of container, and this affects where the bar container is displayed.

The following image shows the result:
