Every DocumentGroup has a document selector button - an element designed to accomplish easy document navigation. Its drop-down menu displays a list of Documents, contained within its parent document group. The following figure illustrates a document selector button:

Document Selector Button

The ShowDocumentSelectorButton property, accessed via the IDocumentGroupDefaultProperties interface, manages a document selector button’s availability for individual document groups. It overrides the corresponding settings provided by the IDocumentGroupProperties.ShowDocumentSelectorButton property that specifies document selector buttons for all groups within a tabbed view.

Document selector buttons are enabled by default. In order to hide them, use the following code:

(documentManager1.View as DevExpress.XtraBars.Docking2010.Views.Tabbed.TabbedView).DocumentGroups[0].Properties.ShowDocumentSelectorButton = DefaultBoolean.True;
