Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars.Alerter

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v21.1.dll


public virtual bool ShowPinButton { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


true if the Pin button must be displayed in newly created alert windows; otherwise, false.


An alert window can display the Close, Pin and Dropdown control buttons. The availability of these buttons is specified by the AlertControl.ShowCloseButton, ShowPinButton and AlertControl.PopupMenu properties, respectively. The position of the control buttons is specified by the AlertControl.ControlBoxPosition property.

Clicking the Pin button forces an alert window to stay on-screen until the button is clicked again. If the window is unpinned and the mouse cursor doesn’t hover over the window for a specific time, the window is automatically destroyed.

It’s also possible to display custom buttons in alert windows. To do this, add items to the AlertControl.Buttons collection.


Changing the ShowPinButton option is not in effect for existing alert windows. The option is applied to newly created windows.
