public bool? AllowLayoutItemRename { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if layout items can be renamed; otherwise, false.


To enable/forbid layout item renaming, use the AllowLayoutItemRename option.

If this property is set to null, item renaming is enabled in Customization Mode. An end-user can rename an item via the context menu. In code, you can initiate item renaming via the LayoutController.Rename method.

If the AllowLayoutItemRename property is set to true, item renaming is supported, even when Customization Mode is not enabled. However, an end-user can initiate item renaming only in Customization Mode.

Setting the AllowLayoutItemRename property to false prevents the item from being renamed.

To prevent a specific item from being renamed, set the item’s BaseLayoutItem.AllowRename option to false. If the BaseLayoutItem.AllowRename property is set to true and the AllowLayoutItemRename option is set to false, the item cannot be renamed.
