How to: Create and Modify the Control's Large Image List
- 2 minutes to read
The following sample code creates and modifies an image list that will serve as the source of large images for the control. The modified component is assigned to the NavBarControl.LargeImages property. The NavElement.LargeImageIndex property is used to assign images to items and a group. The NavBarGroup.UseSmallImage and NavBarGroup.GroupStyle properties are set to false to enable displaying large images.
The image below displays the control's look & feel before and after code execution:
using DevExpress.XtraNavBar; // adjusting an image list ImageList largeImageSource = new ImageList(); largeImageSource.ImageSize = new Size(32, 32); largeImageSource.Images.Add(Image.FromFile("E:\\Images\\Icons\\MSHelpLarge.bmp")); largeImageSource.Images.Add(Image.FromFile("E:\\Images\\Icons\\IndexLarge.bmp")); largeImageSource.Images.Add(Image.FromFile("E:\\Images\\Icons\\BookClosedLarge.bmp")); // setting the image list as the source of large images navBarControl1.LargeImages = largeImageSource; // assigning a large image to a group caption NavBarGroup currGroup = navBarControl1.Groups; currGroup.LargeImageIndex = 0; currGroup.UseSmallImage = false; // assigning large images to items currGroup.ItemLinks.Item.LargeImageIndex = 1; currGroup.ItemLinks.Item.LargeImageIndex = 2; currGroup.LinksUseSmallImage = false;
