GroupShapeCollection.Ungroup() Method

Splits a group into individual shapes.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraRichEdit.API.Native

Assembly: DevExpress.RichEdit.v22.1.Core.dll

Declaration

IEnumerable<DrawingObject> Ungroup()

Returns

Type Description
IEnumerable<DrawingObject>

A collection of shapes retrieved from the group.

Remarks

The Ungroup method does not split nested groups into separate shapes. Call this method for each group individually.

The example below shows how to split all shape groups in the document (including nested groups):

using System.Linq;
// ...

Document document = wordProcessor.Document;
List<DrawingObject> groups = document.Shapes.Flatten()
    .Where(x => x.Type == ShapeType.Group)
    .ToList();
for (int i = groups.Count - 1; i >= 0; i--)
{
    groups[i].GroupItems.Ungroup();
}
