AccordionControl.AllowCollectionView Property

Gets or sets whether to allow process collection views. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Accordion

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Accordion.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public bool AllowCollectionView { get; set; }
Public Property AllowCollectionView As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true, to allow processing collection views; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The AccordionControl includes support for ICollectionViews – allowing you to manipulate the current record, and define rules for filtering, sorting and grouping.

If the AllowCollectionView property is set to false and an ICollectionView is used as a data source, the AccordionControl transforms the ICollectionView to a plain list, internally. In this instance, rules defined for filtering, grouping and sorting in the ICollectionView are ignored.

Examples

This example demonstrates how to bind the AccordionControl to a collection view and synchronize the selected item with the collection view.
