Property Value

Type Description
DevExpress.Xpf.Navigation.TileNavCategoryCollection

A TileNavCategoryCollection object that represents a collection of TileNavCategory objects.

Remarks

The TileNavPane displays three levels of navigation elements (categories - items - sub-items). Categories (TileNavCategory objects) are the root-level navigation elements. Each category can contain items (TileNavItem objects), each of which, in turn, can contain sub-items (TileNavSubItem objects). The Categories property provides access to the collection of navigation categories available in the current TileNavPane.

At design time, you can use the TileNavPane's smart tag menu to add a new category with a click on the New TileNav Category command.

TileNavPane_SmartTagMenu_AddNewCategory

With a click on the Run Designer command, you can also invoke the TileNav Pane Designer which allows you to manage the hierarchy of navigation elements.
