NavBarItem.Content Property

Gets or sets the item’s content. This is a dependency property.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.NavBar

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

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.NavBar

Declaration

public object Content { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description
Object

An object specifying the item’s content.

Remarks

Use the Content property to define the content of the item.

Note

The Content property is, by design, specified as the default property and the content property of an item. This, for example, allows you to declare item contents in XAML directly after an item declaration, without wrapping them into opening and closing NavBarItem.Content tags.

See the Item Content Model topic to learn more.

Example

This example demonstrates how items can be created and customized programmatically within a navbar group.

In this sample, images are defined for the group header and the third group item via the NavBarGroup.ImageSource and NavBarItem.ImageSource properties, respectively. The item image’s layout is customized by assigning the item’s NavBarItem.VisualStyle property with a specific style that makes use of the NavBarViewBase.LayoutSettings attached property’s LayoutSettings.ImageDocking setting.

View Example

private void CreateGroup1(NavBarControl navBar){
    NavBarGroup group1 = new NavBarGroup();
    group1.Header = "Items";
    //Display an image within the group's header
    group1.ImageSource = new BitmapImage(new Uri("pack://application:,,,/Images/folder.png"));

    NavBarItem item1 = new NavBarItem();
    item1.Content = "Home";
    group1.Items.Add(item1);

    NavBarItem item2 = new NavBarItem();
    item2.Content = "Work";
    group1.Items.Add(item2);

    NavBarItem item3 = new NavBarItem();
    item3.Content = "Private";
    //Display an image within the item
    item3.ImageSource = new BitmapImage(new Uri("pack://application:,,,/Images/private.png"));
    //Change item image layout
    Style itemStyle = new Style();
    itemStyle.Setters.Add(new Setter(NavBarViewBase.LayoutSettingsProperty, new LayoutSettings() { ImageDocking = Dock.Right }));
    item3.VisualStyle = itemStyle;
    group1.Items.Add(item3);

    navBar.Groups.Add(group1);
}
