RibbonControl.SaveLayoutToXml Method

Saves the current RibbonControl's layout to the specific XML file.

Namespace:DevExpress.XtraBars.Ribbon
Assembly:DevExpress.XtraBars.v18.2.dll

Expanded Syntax

Parameters

xmlFile
Type: String
A String value that is the path to an XML file where the current RibbonControl's layout should be saved.

Expanded Remarks

An end-user can customize a RibbonControl at runtime if the AllowCustomization property is set to true. Customized layouts can also be saved to an XML file or loaded from it. An end-user can do it via the Import/Export button in the Ribbon Customization Window. Use the RestoreLayoutFromXml and SaveLayoutToXml methods to do it in code.

Failure to save or restore a ribbon layout fires the InvalidSaveRestoreLayoutException event.

Tip

You can utilize the Workspace Manager to save and restore layouts for all supported DevExpress controls at once.
