DevExpress.XtraBars.Navigation.ShowFilterControl Never

A value that specifies the built-in filter control’s visibility.


A filter control filters elements of the AccordionControl based on a search string. Built-in and external filter controls are supported.

When the ShowFilterControl property is set to Always, a built-in filter control is always visible. If the property is set to Auto, an end-user can display the built-in filter control by pressing the CTRL+F shortcut. The filter control is closed on pressing ESC.

You can access the built-in filter control or substitute it with a custom one with the AccordionControl.FilterControl property.

To provide filtering capabilities in an external filter control, use SearchControl.
