BarMdiChildrenListItem Class

Represents a bar item containing a list of active windows in an MDI applications.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraBars

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraBars.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public class BarMdiChildrenListItem :
    BarListItem
Public Class BarMdiChildrenListItem
    Inherits BarListItem

Remarks

The BarMDIChildrenListItem can be used to implement navigation between the windows of MDI applications. This item type contains the complete list of active MDI child documents. The items in this list can be displayed with a check mark at the left of the document to indicate the currently active item and with numbers which serve as the hotkey for a specific item:

MDIChildrenListItem

If icons are assigned to MDI children, they will be displayed next to MDI children captions by the BarMdiChildrenListItem. If an incorrect icon is assigned to an MDI child, it will not be displayed.

Since the BarMDIChildrenListItem class is a descendant of the BarListItem class, it inherits the BarListItem's behavior - within a menu it appears as a list and within a bar it appears as a submenu.

NOTE

If you create Bar Items in code, note that these objects may not function properly without being associated with a BarManager or RibbonControl. To create a Bar Item, use a Bar Item constructor that has the BarManager parameter. When creating a Bar Item in code for use within a RibbonControl, use a Bar Item constructor that has the BarManager parameter, and pass the RibbonControl.Manager object as this parameter.
