AppBarToggleButton Class

Represents the toggle button in the AppBar.

Namespace: DevExpress.Xpf.WindowsUI

Assembly: DevExpress.Xpf.Controls.v23.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Wpf.Controls


public class AppBarToggleButton :


The AppBarToggleButton is a button that supports two states: checked and unchecked, using the AppBarToggleButton.IsChecked property. The AppBarToggleButton is typically used to represent Boolean options.


When an end-user toggles the AppBarToggleButton, its IsChecked property of the Boolean type changes accordingly. To respond to a check state toggle, handle the AppBarToggleButton.Checked and AppBarToggleButton.Unchecked events.

To learn more on the app bar, see the AppBar Control topic.


The following example shows how to create an app bar containing custom regular and toggle buttons, the predefined Exit button, and the button that displays a flyout when clicked.

In this example, the AppBar control is populated with the AppBarButton and AppBarToggleButton objects, which are divided into groups using the AppBarSeparator objects. To display the predefined Exit button, the AppBar.IsExitButtonEnabled property is set to True.

The button captions are specified using the AppBarButton.Label property. The HorizontalAlignment property specifies the button alignment relative to the app bar.

The CommandButton.Glyph property is used to provide the buttons with icons from the DX Image Gallery. The glyph theming feature is enabled for all buttons and the glyph height is set using the Style declared in the app bar’s Resources. You can also use the button’s Content property to specify the button icons. See the Pin button — the icon for this button is specified using the Unicode symbol that corresponds to the glyph in the Segoe UI Symbol font. For more information about how to use Segoe UI Symbol icons, see Guidelines on MSDN.

The Rotate button displays the flyout when clicked. The button’s Flyout property allows you associate the Flyout or MenuFlyout control with the button.

The result of the markup in this example is shown below.



<dxwui:AppBar x:Name="appBar" IsOpen="True" HideMode="Sticky" IsExitButtonEnabled="True">
    <dxwui:AppBarButton Label="Zoom in" Glyph="{dx:DXImageGrayscale Image=ZoomIn_32x32.png}" />

    <dxwui:AppBarSeparator />
    <dxwui:AppBarButton Label="Actual Size" Glyph="{dx:DXImageGrayscale Image=Zoom_32x32.png}" />

        <Style TargetType="dxwui:AppBarButton">
            <Setter Property="AllowGlyphTheming" Value="True" />
            <Setter Property="GlyphHeight" Value="24" />
