Bar.ShowDragWidget Property

Gets or sets whether a drag widget is displayed at the left of the bar, allowing the bar to be dragged using the mouse. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Bars

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

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Core


public bool ShowDragWidget { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true, if a drag widget is displayed at the left of the bar; otherwise, false.


By default, when a bar is docked, it displays the drag widget at the bar’s left edge, which allows the end-user to drag the bar. Setting the ShowDragWidget property to false hides the drag widget. This also prevents end-users from changing the bar position using drag-and-drop.

If the Bar.AllowCollapse property is set to true, double-clicking the drag widget collapses the bar.


Drag widgets are only supported if bars are placed inside a BarContainerControl. Follow this topic to learn more about BarContainerControl.
