Property Value

Type Description

A DevExpress.Utils.ContextItemCollection object that stores context buttons, shown by all items within this AccordionControl.


AccordionControl can display context buttons for items and groups. These buttons are stored within the AccordionControl.ItemContextButtons and AccordionControl.GroupContextButtons collections respectively. The figure below illustrates different context button sets for accordion items and groups.

AccordionControl - Context Buttons

Button Types

Available button types include:

Create Buttons

Use the Context Button Editor to create and customize buttons at design time.

AccordionControl - Context Button Editor

If you need to hide specific context buttons from individual accordion elements or modify particular buttons in any other manner, handle the AccordionControl.ContextButtonCustomize event. See the event description for an example.

Accordion elements may also display any control within their header area if this control is assigned to the element’s HeaderControl property. This control does not replace context buttons, meaning both of them can be simultaneously displayed.

Handle Button Clicks

Handle the ContextButtonClick event to respond to button clicks. Use the e.Item property to get the clicked context button.

using DevExpress.XtraBars.Navigation;

private void accordionControl1_ContextButtonClick(object sender, DevExpress.Utils.ContextItemClickEventArgs e) {
    if(e.Item is AccordionRatingContextButton) {
        // Handle bontext button click.
