Example

This example shows how to get and focus an editor embedded into a bar.In the example bars are added to BarContainers that are automatically created by setting the BarManager.CreateStandardLayout property to True.

<!--Set CreateStandardLayout to True  to create four BarContainers 
at the top, left, right, and bottom edges-->
<dxb:BarManager CreateStandardLayout="True" Margin="12" Name="barManager1">
    <dxb:BarManager.Items>
        <dxb:BarButtonItem x:Name="btn" Content="button" ItemClick="btn_ItemClick" />
        <dxb:BarEditItem x:Name="beiEditor" EditValue="text">
            <dxb:BarEditItem.EditSettings>
                <dxe:TextEditSettings></dxe:TextEditSettings>
            </dxb:BarEditItem.EditSettings>
        </dxb:BarEditItem>
    </dxb:BarManager.Items>

    <dxb:BarManager.Bars>
        <dxb:Bar x:Name="topBar" Caption="Top Bar">
            <!--Display the bar within the top BarContainer-->
            <dxb:Bar.DockInfo>
                <dxb:BarDockInfo ContainerType="Top" />
            </dxb:Bar.DockInfo>
            <dxb:Bar.ItemLinks>
                <dxb:BarButtonItemLink BarItemName="btn" />
                <dxb:BarEditItemLink BarItemName="beiEditor" />
            </dxb:Bar.ItemLinks>
        </dxb:Bar>
        <dxb:Bar x:Name="leftBar" Caption="Left Bar">
            <!--Display the bar within the left BarContainer-->
            <dxb:Bar.DockInfo>
                <dxb:BarDockInfo ContainerType="Left" />
            </dxb:Bar.DockInfo>
            <dxb:Bar.ItemLinks>
                <dxb:BarButtonItemLink BarItemName="btn" />                        
            </dxb:Bar.ItemLinks>
        </dxb:Bar>

    </dxb:BarManager.Bars>
    <RichTextBox></RichTextBox>
</dxb:BarManager> 
private void btn_ItemClick(object sender, DevExpress.Xpf.Bars.ItemClickEventArgs e) {
    (beiEditor.Links[0] as BarEditItemLink).Editor.Focus();
} 

Example

This example shows how to manually create different types of bar containers: 1) A bar container used to display bars at the top of the window, 2) A float bar container (it's created automatically when setting the Bar.DockInfo.ContainerType property to Floating), 3) A standalone bar container that can be freely positioned within the window.
