Property Value

Type Default Description
DevExpress.XtraBars.Ribbon.RibbonPageGroupState Auto

A DevExpress.XtraBars.Ribbon.RibbonPageGroupState enumeration value, such as Auto, Expanded or Collapsed, that specifies the group expand/collapse state.


The DevExpress.XtraBars.Ribbon.RibbonPageGroupState enumeration provides the following states:

  • Expanded - all items are always visible regardless of the available space.


  • Collapsed - items are hidden, a click on a collapsed group invokes a drop-down menu that contains the hidden items.


  • Auto (the default mode) - the group automatically collapses when there is insufficient space to display all items.


Setting the RibbonPageGroup.AllowMinimize property to true is equivalent to setting the State property to Auto.
