MenuItem.Selected Property

Gets or sets a value that specifies whether the current menu item is selected.

Namespace: DevExpress.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v22.1.dll


public bool Selected { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


true if the item is selected; otherwise, false.


If the ASPxMenuBase.AllowSelectItem property is set to true, end users are allowed to select menu items via mouse clicks. A menu control (which can be either the ASPxMenu or ASPxPopupMenu) also provides the ability to select a particular menu item via code. You can use the Selected property of a menu item for this purpose.

Note that the item whose Selected property is set to true is displayed selected only if the menu control’s ASPxMenuBase.ItemLinkMode property is set to the ItemLinkMode.ContentBounds value.

In order to select a specific item from the level of a menu control, use the menu’s ASPxMenuBase.SelectedItem property instead.
