Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public override bool AutoSizeInLayoutControl { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if auto-size mode is enabled; otherwise, false.


When an editor is displayed within a LayoutControl, you can use the AutoSizeInLayoutControl property to enable auto-size mode. In auto-size mode, the control’s size is automatically changed to completely display the control’s first item.

The layout control allows you to set size constraints for controls, specifying the range in which the control’s size can vary. See the Size and Alignment topic for more information.


The following code shows how to enable the auto-size feature for a CheckEdit within a LayoutControl, and center the CheckEdit within the corresponding layout item.


using DevExpress.XtraLayout;

checkEdit1.AutoSizeInLayoutControl = true;
layoutControlItem2.SizeConstraintsType = SizeConstraintsType.SupportHorzAlignment;
layoutControlItem2.ContentHorzAlignment = DevExpress.Utils.HorzAlignment.Center;

See the following help topic for more information: Size and Alignment.
