Property Value

Type Default Description
String "CategoryName"

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


The ContextTabCategoryNameField property is in effect if the ASPxRibbon control is bound to a data source.

Use the ContextTabCategoryNameField property to specify the bound data source’s data field (or an xml element’s attribute) which stores tab context categories. The ContextTabCategoryNameField property maps the RibbonTab.ContextTabCategory property to the specified data field’s values. If the property is empty, the current ribbon tab does not belong to a context category.
