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

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.NavBar


public event NavBarGroupExpandedChangedEventHandler GroupExpandedChanged

Event Data

The GroupExpandedChanged event's data class is NavBarGroupExpandedChangedEventArgs. The following properties provide information specific to this event:

Property Description
Group Gets a group object related to the event.
Handled Gets or sets a value that indicates the present state of the event handling for a routed event as it travels the route. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
IsExpanded Gets a value indicating whether the processed group is expanded.
OriginalSource Gets the original reporting source as determined by pure hit testing, before any possible Source adjustment by a parent class. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
RoutedEvent Gets or sets the RoutedEvent associated with this RoutedEventArgs instance. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
Source Gets or sets a reference to the object that raised the event. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.

The event data class exposes the following methods:

Method Description
InvokeEventHandler(Delegate, Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a way to invoke event handlers in a type-specific way, which can increase efficiency over the base implementation. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.
OnSetSource(Object) When overridden in a derived class, provides a notification callback entry point whenever the value of the Source property of an instance changes. Inherited from RoutedEventArgs.


Write an GroupExpandedChanged event handler to perform specific actions each time a group’s expanded state changes within the NavBarControl.

This example demonstrates how to wrap an item’s text onto several lines, if this text is too long. To accomplish this, a template of the NavBarViewBase.ItemTemplate type is created at the view level. This template contains a standard TextBlock control whose TextBlock.TextWrapping property is set to Wrap.

View Example

<Application x:Class="LongNavBarItemText.App" xmlns="" xmlns:x="" StartupUri="Window1.xaml">
