DXTabControl.AllowMerging Property

Gets or sets whether a tab control merges its bar items. This is a dependency property.

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

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: Nullable<Boolean>

true, to enable merging; otherwise, false.

The default is null.


Expanded Remarks

To merge a tab control's bar/ribbon items with its parent bar/ribbon, set the AllowMerging property to true.

To disable merging a tab control's bar/ribbon items, set the AllowMerging property to false.

If the AllowMerging is set to null, tab control will merge bars\ribbons that are placed within this tab control, for example bars\ribbons located in the ContentHeaderTemplate or ContentFooterTemplate areas and DXTabItem content will be merged. This feature is demonstrated in the example below.
