Bar

BarItemLinkBase.BarItemName Property

Gets or sets the name of the bar item to which the current link refers. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Bars

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

Declaration

public string BarItemName { get; set; }
Public Property BarItemName As String

Property Value

Type Description
String

A string value that specifies the bar item's name.

Remarks

For items to be displayed in bars, you need to create corresponding links. When defining a link in XAML, you need to associate the link with an item. This is performed by setting the BarItemName property to the name of the target item.

For more information, see Items and Links.

Examples

This example shows how to create three bars (File, Edit and StatusBar) using the BarManager component. Actions for bar elements are defined by commands implemented in the MyViewModel class.   The window's DataContext is set to a MyViewModel class descendant, which is automatically generated by the DevExpress.Mvvm.POCO.ViewModelSource object. This descendant automatically generates commands for all public methods in the MyViewModel class (the OpenFileCommand, NewFileCommand and SetAlignmentCommand are generated).

The result is shown below:
