NuGet Package: DevExpress.Web


public string SaveStateToCookiesID { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
String String.Empty

A string value specifying a cookie’s name.


This property is in effect if the ASPxNavBar.SaveStateToCookies property is set to true.

The SaveStateToCookiesID property allows you to control the manner in which the navbar’s state information is persisted in cookies. If this property is set to an empty string (the default value), the name of the cookie which will store the navbar’s state is composed automatically based upon the page name and the navbar’s identifier. In this case, such a cookie is tightly linked with the requested page and the corresponding navbar control. In some cases, however, it may be required that a navbar’s state information can be shared between different requested pages, for instance when a navbar is placed on a master page and its state needs to be kept while displaying different content pages. In this case, you can assign any specific identification name to the SaveStateToCookiesID property and if this name is independent from the page name and the navbar’s identifier, the state information stored by the cookie can be applied to all the navbar controls (on all the web pages) whose SaveStateToCookiesID property is set to the same value.
