BarItemMergeType Enumeration

Contains values that specify how item links behave during merge operations

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Bars
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v18.1.dll

Expanded Public Members

Show: Inherited
  Name Description
Public field Add Specifies that the child BarManager's BarItemLink should be added to a bar/link container of a parent BarManager.

When merging bars and link containers, the position to insert the BarItemLink is determined by the BarItemLinkBase.MergeOrder properties of this link and of the links within the target bar/link container.

Public field Default Acts identically to the Add value.
Public field MergeItems This setting is applied to link containers (e.g. sub-menu).

It specifies that subitems of the child BarManager's link container should be merged with subitems of a parent BarManager's link container. Merging occurs for the parent BarManager's link container, when the type and BarItem.Content match the source item, and only if its BarItemLinkBase.MergeType property is set to MergeItems. Otherwise, the child BarManager's link container will simply be added to the parent BarManager's bar (similar to the Add setting).

Public field Remove For a child BarManager's BarItemLink, indicates that the link must not be added to the parent BarManager's bar/link container during merging.

For a parent BarManager's BarItemLink, indicates that the link must be removed from the bar/link container during merging.

Public field Replace Indicates that the child BarManager's BarItemLink should replace the parent BarManager's link that has the same BarItem.Content, but only if the parent link's BarItemLinkBase.MergeType property is also set to Replace.

If such a link is not found in the parent BarManager's bar/link container, the child BarManager's link will simply be added to the bar/link container (similar to the Add setting).

Expanded Remarks

During merging, you can specify whether the bar item links of a child BarManager's bar/link container should be added to the parent BarManager's bar/link container (this is the default behavior), should replace item links on the parent bar with identical captions or should simply be removed from a bar. To specify these settings, use the BarItemLinkBase.MergeType properties of the child BarManager's links that need to be merged.

See MDI Bar Merging to learn more.
