BaseLayoutItem.HeaderBarContainerControlName Property

Gets or sets the name of the bar container, used to embed bars from the DXBars library. This is a dependency property.

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

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: String
A string that specifies the name of the bar container.

Expanded Remarks

Each dock panel contains a bar container at the top edge that accepts bars from the DXBars library. This allows you to display bars within dock panels. To display a bar within a dock panel, do the following:

  • Assign a unique name to the dock panel's bar container via the HeaderBarContainerControlName property.
  • Assign the same name to the Bar.DockInfo.ContainerName (BarDockInfo.ContainerName) property.
Note

The HeaderBarContainerControlName property is supported for LayoutPanel and DocumentPanel objects.

Expanded Example

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E1610.

This example shows how to embed a bar from the DXBars library into a dock panel.


Dock panels embed bar containers at their top edges, allowing bars to be displayed in these containers. To add a bar to a dock panel's bar container, the name of the target bar container is assigned to the Bar.DockInfo.ContainerName property. This name matches the name of the LayoutPanel.HeaderBarContainerControlName property's value.
