CarouselPanel.ItemMovingPath Property

Gets or sets the path along which the Carousel's items are evenly arranged.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Carousel

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Carousel.v20.2.dll

Declaration

public PathGeometry ItemMovingPath { get; set; }
Public Property ItemMovingPath As PathGeometry

Property Value

Type Description
PathGeometry

A PathGeometry value that specifies the item path.

Remarks

If you specify an item path via the ItemMovingPath property, items are arranged evenly along the path. If you need to arrange items at specific points along a path, specify a path via the CarouselPanel.PointPathFunction property. In this instance, the ItemMovingPath property will be ignored.

The DXCarousel library defines a set of commonly used paths in its resources. They can be applied via the ItemMovingPath property:

    An example of using a predefined path is shown below.

Examples

This example shows how to specify a path for a CarouselPanel via the ItemMovingPath property.

The path assigned to this property is retrieved from a specific resource (ResourceId=Ellipse) defined in the DXCarousel library. Other built-in path types include: HalfEllipse, Line, Angle, Arc, Rectangle, Sine and Spiral.
