Represents a view that allows multiple groups to be expanded at the same time.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.NavBar

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.NavBar.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.NavBar


public class ExplorerBarView :


The view implemented by the ExplorerBarView class emulates the explorer bars found in Microsoft Explorer. When the ExplorerBarView is used, end-users can expand/collapse each group individually.


In addition to common members inherited from the base class, the ExplorerBarView class implements the ExplorerBarView.GroupExpandedChanging and ExplorerBarView.GroupExpandedChanged events, allowing you to respond to group expanded state changes.

Once you have created a new instance of the ExplorerBarView class, it should be assigned to the NavBarControl’s NavBarControl.View property, to apply this view to the control.
