public string ClientInstanceName { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A string value that specifies the ASPxNavBar‘s client identifier.


Use the ClientInstanceName property to specify a unique client-side identifier for the ASPxNavBar control. The ClientInstanceName property’s value can be used on the client side to programmatically access the client object rendered for the ASPxNavBar control in client-side script. This property is particularly important in referencing the ASPxNavBar control when it is contained within a naming container (for instance, within an ASPxPageControl‘s page or an ASPxPopupControl‘s window).

If the ClientInstanceName property is not specified for a control, the control’s client identifier is generated automatically and equals the value of the control’s ID property. Note that in this case, client-side programmatic access to the control is not allowed when the control is contained within a naming container.


The client-side programmatic interface is available if the ASPxNavBar.EnableClientSideAPI property is set to true.
