Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v20.2.dll

Declaration

[DefaultValue(false)]
public bool BeginGroup { get; set; }
<DefaultValue(False)>
Public Property BeginGroup As Boolean

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean

false

true if the current menu item starts a group; otherwise, false.

Remarks

Use the BeginGroup property to control whether a specific separator should appear before the current menu item to separate it from other menu items.

The separator's appearance can be customized either centrally at the menu control level via the ASPxMenuBase.SeparatorBackgroundImage, ASPxMenuBase.SeparatorColor, ASPxMenuBase.SeparatorPaddings and ASPxMenuBase.SeparatorWidth properties or via the MenuStyle.SeparatorBackgroundImage, MenuStyle.SeparatorColor, MenuStyle.SeparatorPaddings and MenuStyle.SeparatorWidth properties available by the corresponding style settings of sub-menus.

Examples

This example demonstrates how the checked state of items can be manipulated to emulate the toolbar behavior (using the ASPxMenu control).
