Property Value

Type Default Description
DevExpress.XtraBars.Navigation.ShowDirection Normal

The direction in which tiles’ dropdown controls are opened.


The default direction in which tile dropdown controls (TileBarItem.DropDownControl objects) are opened is dependent on the TileBar‘s dock style (the Dock property) and tile arrangement direction (the TileControl.Orientation property). When a TileBar is docked at a container’s edge and tiles are arranged along this edge, the default direction of showing tile dropdown controls is toward the container’s center. To open tile dropdown controls in the opposite direction, set the DropDownShowDirection property to Inverted.
