public DataTemplate CaptionTemplate { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A DataTemplate object that visualizes the current item’s BaseLayoutItem.Caption.


The BaseLayoutItem.Caption property specifies an item caption.

You can use the CaptionTemplate property to display a non-string BaseLayoutItem.Caption. Use the BaseLayoutItem.CaptionTemplateSelector property to select a template based on custom logic.

If a layout item is displayed as a tab item, the BaseLayoutItem.Caption property determines its tab caption. In this case, the CaptionTemplate is also applied to this tab’s caption.

The following code sample displays the Open button at the panel header’s right (ControlBoxContentTemplate property) and the X button next to the tab caption (CaptionTemplate property):

<Window ...
                <dxdo:LayoutPanel Caption="Error List">
                            <Button Content="Open" />
                            <StackPanel Orientation="Horizontal">
                                <TextBlock Text="{Binding}" />
                                <Button Content="X" />
                <dxdo:LayoutPanel Caption="Solution Explorer" />
                <dxdo:LayoutPanel Caption="Find Replace" />
