NavBarControl.MenuManager Property

Gets or sets an object that controls the look and feel of the control's popup menus.

Namespace:DevExpress.XtraNavBar
Assembly:DevExpress.XtraNavBar.v17.1.dll

Expanded Syntax

Property value

Type: IDXMenuManager
An object that controls the look and feel of the control's popup menus.
The default is null.

Expanded Remarks

The MenuManager property allows you to specify the IDXMenuManager object, used to control the look and feel of popup menus. If this property is set to null, the editor's popup menus will be painted by the editor itself. Otherwise, the IDXMenuManager object will be responsible for painting the menus.

Currently, the IDXMenuManager interface is implemented by the BarManager component, which is part of the DevExpress Ribbon, Menu and Docking Library.

If the MenuManager property is set to an instance of the BarManager component, you can provide different look and feels (Flat, Styles3D, OfficeXP, Office2003 etc) for popup menus. In this case, Look and Feel settings are controlled by the BarAndDockingController.LookAndFeel and BarAndDockingController.PaintStyleName properties of the bar and docking controller used by the bar manager.

The following images show a menu painted using various schemes invoked by the associated bar manager:
UltraFlat
WindowsXP
Office2000
Office2003
