How to: Change the control's view via code

To change a NavBarControl's view in code, you should create a new instance of the required view object (SideBarView, NavigationPaneView, or ExplorerBarView) and assign it to the NavBarControl.View property.

using DevExpress.Xpf.NavBar;

//...
    NavigationPaneView navPaneView = new NavigationPaneView();
    navPaneView.ActiveGroupMinHeight = 200;
    navBarControl1.View = navPaneView;
