Property Value

Type Description

A DevExpress.Xpf.Bars.CommonBarItemCollection object that stores bar items, whose links are displayed within this BarLinkContainerItem.


There are two ways to populate link holders like BarLinkContainerItem objects. The traditional way is to create BarItemLinks for each BarItem required and place these links to the corresponding collection (the BarLinkContainerItem.ItemLinks collection for BarLinkContainerItems). Use this approach to modify the desired link properties (e.g., a caption or icon) so that they differ from their source bar item settings.

Starting from version 14.1, you can directly add bar items to BarLinkContainerItem objects. The BarManager will automatically generate a link for each bar item added. This allows you to speed-up application UI development, since you do not need to manually create bar item links. Use this approach if bar item links should have the same settings as their parent bar items.
