Bar

BarManager.Bars Property

Gets the bar collection of the BarManager.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Bars

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

Declaration

public BarCollection Bars { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property Bars As BarCollection

Property Value

Type Description
BarCollection

The BarCollection object.

Remarks

Use the Bars property to access, add or delete bars from the BarManager.

Once a bar has been created, it must be added to the Bars collection. In addition, the bar must be associated with a specific bar container that will display this bar. To associate a bar with a container, use the Bar.DockInfo property.

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:
