Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.Ribbon

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Ribbon.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public RibbonPageGroupCollection Groups { get; }
Public ReadOnly Property Groups As RibbonPageGroupCollection

Property Value

Type Description
DevExpress.Xpf.Ribbon.RibbonPageGroupCollection

A collection of ribbon page groups.

Remarks

Use this property to add page groups to the current page. Each page group is represented by a RibbonPageGroup object.

The Groups property is marked with the System.Windows.Markup.ContentPropertyAttribute attribute. So, in XAML, RibbonPageGroup objects defined between the RibbonPage start and end tags will be added to the current page.

Examples

This example shows how to create a Default Page Category containing one "Home" page. The "Home" page contains three page groups ("File", "Edit" and "Format"), each displaying specific commands.

The following image shows the result:
