ASPxTreeList.SaveClientLayout() Method

Saves the ASPxTreeList layout.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web.ASPxTreeList

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.ASPxTreeList.v22.1.dll


public virtual byte[] SaveClientLayout()


Type Description

An array of bytes that contains the ASPxTreeList’s layout data.


Use the SaveClientLayout property to save the ASPxTreeList layout. To control what information on the layout can be saved, use options provided by the ASPxTreeList.SettingsCookies property.

To load a previously saved layout, use the ASPxTreeList.LoadClientLayout method.


This example shows how to manually save and restore the previously saved layout. When the Save Layout or Load Layout button is clicked, the tree list’s client ASPxClientTreeList.PerformCallback method is used to send a callback to the server. This generates the server-side ASPxTreeList.CustomCallback event, which is handled to save or restore the tree list’s layout.

protected void ASPxTreeList1_CustomCallback(object sender,
DevExpress.Web.ASPxTreeList.TreeListCustomCallbackEventArgs e) {
    if (e.Parameters == "save") {
        SaveUserLayoutToDatabase("userID", "TreeListLayout", ASPxTreeList1.SaveClientLayout());
    if (e.Parameters == "load") {
        ASPxTreeList1.LoadClientLayout(GetUserLayoutFromDatabase("userID", "TreeListLayout"));
