NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public object HtmlImages { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Object null

An image collection (DevExpress.Utils.ImageCollection or DevExpress.Utils.SvgImageCollection).


Enable the Html text formatting feature (see RibbonControl.AllowHtmlText and BarItem.AllowHtmlText) to format item captions (BarItem.Caption and BarItem.Description) ) with HTML-inspired tags.

When you compose an HTML string, you can use the image tag to insert an image from an image collection and project’s resources into the text.

To insert an image from an image collection, do the following:

  • Create an image collection (ImageCollection or SvgImageCollection) and populate it with images.
  • Assign the collection to the HtmlImages property.
  • When you use the image tag, address a target image by its name (image names can be obtained from the image collection).
ribbonControl1.AllowHtmlText = true;
ribbonControl1.HtmlImages = imageCollection1;
barStaticItem1.Caption = "Person <image=person>";
