Property Value

Type Description
DataTemplate

A DataTemplate object that specifies the corresponding template.

Remarks

The DataTemplate must be defined as a ContentControl with a RibbonPageGroup object as the content.

The GroupTemplate property supports the MVVM design pattern. See MVVM Support to learn more.

The example below illustrates how to implement the GroupTemplate:

     <Window.DataContext>
        <local:ViewModel/>
    </Window.DataContext>
    <Window.Resources>
        <DataTemplate x:Key="groupTemplate">
            <ContentControl>
                <dxr:RibbonPageGroup Caption="{Binding Name}" ItemLinksSource="{Binding Items}" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource itemTemplate}"/>
            </ContentControl>
        </DataTemplate>
<Window.DataContext>
    <local:ViewModel/>
</Window.DataContext>
<Window.Resources>
    <DataTemplate x:Key="groupTemplate">
        <ContentControl>
            <dxr:RibbonPageGroup Caption="{Binding Name}" ItemLinksSource="{Binding Items}" ItemTemplate="{StaticResource itemTemplate}"/>
        </ContentControl>
    </DataTemplate>
</Window.Resources>
public class ViewModel {
      public ViewModel() {
          //...
          ObservableCollection<ItemBase> items = new ObservableCollection<ItemBase>();
          items.Add(new ItemBase() { Name = "Item1" });
          items.Add(new ItemBase() { Name = "Item2" });
          ObservableCollection<Group> groups = new ObservableCollection<Group>();
          groups.Add(new Group() { Name = "Group1", Items = items });
      }
}
//...
public class Group : ItemBase {
    public ObservableCollection<ItemBase> Items { get; set; }
}
public class ItemBase {
    public string Name { get; set; }
}
