Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars

Declaration

public virtual void RestoreLayoutFromStream(
    Stream stream
)

    stream As Stream
)

Parameters

Name Type Description
stream Stream

A Stream descendant from which the bars' settings are read. If null (Nothing in Visual Basic), an exception is raised.

Remarks

Use the RestoreLayoutFromStream method to load the bars' layout from the stream to which the layout was saved via the BarManager.SaveLayoutToStream method.

NOTE

When restoring a layout during a form load (for instance, in your Form.Load event handler), you may need to call the BarManager.ForceInitialize method prior to the layout restoration. See this method to learn more.

For more information, see Saving and Restoring a Bars Layout Manually.

Examples

The following code demonstrates how to write and read a BarManager's state to/from memory using the System.IO.MemoryStream class.

    System.IO.Stream stream = new System.IO.MemoryStream();
    barManager1.SaveLayoutToStream(stream);
    //set the stream position to the beginning
    stream.Seek(0, System.IO.SeekOrigin.Begin);

    //...

    barManager1.RestoreLayoutFromStream(stream);
    //set the stream position to the beginning
    stream.Seek(0, System.IO.SeekOrigin.Begin);
