Type Description

A NavBarItem object representing the item related to the specified event. If no item relates to the event, null (Nothing in Visual Basic) is returned.

Use the GetNavBarItem method to obtain an item relating to the event that is described by the passed event argument.

using DevExpress.Xpf.NavBar;
        public Window1(){

            navBar.View.Click += new RoutedEventHandler(View_Click);

        void View_Click(object sender, RoutedEventArgs e){
            NavBarGroup group = navBar.View.GetNavBarGroup(e);
            NavBarItem item = navBar.View.GetNavBarItem(e);
            if (group != null || item != null)
                MessageBox.Show("Click - " + (item != null ? "Item: " + item.Content : "Group: " + group.Header));
