True to generate layout items for IList properties; Default or False to exclude these properties from the generated layout.

When the AllowGeneratingCollectionProperties property is set to DefaultBoolean.Default or DefaultBoolean.False, the generation of layout items that correspond to IList properties is disabled.

NOTE

For a bound object's properties of the Array and IEnumerable types, layout items are added to the layout regardless of the DataLayoutControl.AllowGeneratingCollectionProperties option. These layout items contain embedded GridControls by default.
