How to: Save the layout of bars to the system registry

TIP

You can utilize the Persistence Behavior or Workspace Manager component to save and restore layouts for all supported DevExpress controls at once.

The following code demonstrates how to write and read a BarManager's state to/from the system registry. The full path for the bars layout will be: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\DevExpress\XtraBars\States\MainState.

    string regKey = "DevExpress\\XtraBars\\States\\MainState";
    barManager1.SaveLayoutToRegistry(regKey);

    //...

    barManager1.RestoreLayoutFromRegistry(regKey);
