How to: Create layout items in code

Expanded Online Video

Expanded Example

The following example shows how to create a LayoutControl control and add layout items to it.

The example shows different ways to add visible and hidden layout items to the Layout Control.

Note

To allow a Layout Control's layout to be customized and serialized, ensure that the Name properties of the layout items and their controls are set to unique values. The control's Name property must be initialized before this control is assigned to the LayoutControlItem.Control property.
