NavBarControl Class

A control that enables you to implement a sidebar menu or switching between application modules. Supports three layouts: Navigation Pane, Explorer Bar View and Side Bar View.

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

Expanded Syntax

Expanded Remarks

Add a NavBarControl control to your application to provide it with advanced navigation capabilities. This control allows you to display a number of items arranged into different groups. Groups can be expanded/collapsed in order to show/hide their contents. You can process item click events, to perform the required actions.

With WPF templates supported throughout the DXNavBar, you can easily design custom interfaces to satisfy the most demanding users.

For detailed information on the key features introduced by the DXNavBar, see:

For code samples that demonstrate how to implement most popular tasks, see Examples.

Expanded Example

Show Me

A complete sample project is available in the DevExpress Code Examples database at http://www.devexpress.com/example=E1626.

This example demonstrates how the NavBarControl can be created and customized programmatically (in a code-behind file).

In this sample, two groups are created within the NavBarControl: the first group contains three items; the second group's content is represented by a StackPanel holding two TextBlock controls. The second TextBlock displays the text of the selected item within the NavBarControl.

The ItemSelecting event of the NavBarControl is handled to invoke a confirmation dialog allowing the selection of the first group's third item to be canceled.
