Property Value

Type Description

A Uri object that specifies a path to the layout to be loaded.


It's possible to store a layout of items of a LayoutControl object in XML format to a file, and then load the saved layout by specifying the URI of the file via the LayoutUri property. Once a new value is assigned to the LayoutUri property, the LayoutControl automatically loads the layout.

Assume that a layout has been saved to file "Layout.xaml" and then added to the application project. To load this layout, you can use the following code:

<lc:LayoutControl x:Name="myLayoutControl" LayoutUri="Layout.xaml">

The LayoutControl's LayoutControlBase.WriteToXML method allows you to save the layout of items to a data store. To restore the layout, you can use the LayoutControl.ReadFromXML method.
