Assembly: DevExpress.Web.v21.1.dll


public override string NameField { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


A string value that specifies the name of the required data source field.


The NameField property is in effect if the NavBarGroupDataFields control is bound to a data source (via the ASPxDataWebControlBase.DataSourceID or ASPxDataWebControlBase.DataSource property).

Use the NameField property to specify the bound data source’s data field (or an xml element’s attribute) which stores unique identifier names of navbar groups. The NameField property maps the NavBarGroup.Name properties of NavBarGroup objects to the specified data field’s values.

If the NameField property of a data bound NavBarGroupDataFields control is not defined, the control can automatically obtain group unique identifiers from a data field whose name is “Name” (which is equal to the NavBarGroup.Name property’s name). You can also handle the ASPxNavBar.GroupDataBound event to manipulate a group’s settings as required.
