The following properties accept/return ExpandButtonMode values:


If a control contains an expand button, it (or its region) can be collapsed/expanded by clicking on this button. The expand button displays an arrow which visually indicates the direction in which the control (or its region) will be collapsed/expanded. In specific instances depending on the control’s location within the form, you may want to invert the arrow’s direction. Typically, the control provides an ExpandButtonMode option of the ExpandButtonMode type that allows the arrow’s direction to be inverted.

Currently, inverting the direction an expand button’s arrow is supported by layout groups within a Layout Control. Use the LayoutGroup.ExpandButtonMode property to access this option.
