Property Value

Type Description

A DevExpress.XtraBars.Styles.BarManagerPaintStyle descendant that provides information on the current paint scheme.


Paint information for bars, dock panels and MDI tabbed windows (XtraTabbedMdiManager) are encapsulated in classes derived from the DevExpress.XtraBars.Styles.BarManagerPaintStyle. The DevExpress Ribbon, Menu and Docking Library provides a number of paint styles (OfficeXP, Office2000, etc.) and each is represented by a specific DevExpress.XtraBars.Styles.BarManagerPaintStyle descendant.

The PaintStyle property returns the paint object according to the currently applied scheme which can be changed via the BarAndDockingController.PaintStyleName property. All the available paint schemes can be accessed from the BarAndDockingController.PaintStyles collection.

The PaintStyle property supports the internal infrastructure of the XtraBars library and usually, you do not need to use it directly from your code.
