WorkspaceManager Class

Manages layouts of all DevExpress controls in the application as one global workspace. Workspaces can be saved and restored to (from) a local storage or stream.

Namespace:DevExpress.Xpf.Core
Assembly:DevExpress.Xpf.Core.v17.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Expanded Remarks

The WorkspaceManager is designed to simplify manipulating layouts of DevExpress controls. You can create multiple layouts for visual controls in advance, and then use the WorkspaceManager to instantly switch between them at runtime. To learn more, see Workspace Manager.

Each WorkspaceManager instance is associated with a particular visual control (target control). To create a WorkspaceManager, set the IsEnabled attached property for a visual control to true. A new WorkspaceManager instance will be created and associated with this control. You can now obtain the WorkspaceManager via the WorkspaceManager attached property.

The WorkspaceManager manipulates layouts of the target control and its child controls, so it stores each layout of the target control together with the corresponding layouts of the child controls, arranged into a workspace. Workspaces are identified by their names and stored in the Workspaces collection. A new workspace can be created by capturing the current state of the target control via the CaptureWorkspace method. To apply a previously captured workspace, use the ApplyWorkspace method. The workspaces can be saved to a file or stream using the SaveWorkspace method, and then loaded again with the LoadWorkspace method.

You can also use the TransitionEffect property to specify a visual effect applied when switching between workspaces.

The WorkspaceManager fires the BeforeApplyWorkspace event after the ApplyWorkspace method has been called, before it applies a workspace. After the ApplyWorkspace method has applied the workspace, the AfterApplyWorkspace event occurs.
