Assembly: DevExpress.XtraEditors.v24.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public event BreadCrumbNewNodeAddingEventHandler NewNodeAdding

Event Data

The NewNodeAdding event's data class is DevExpress.XtraEditors.BreadCrumbNewNodeAddingEventArgs.


When a BreadCrumbEdit has to navigate to an unknown BreadCrumbEdit.Path, it raises the ValidatePath event. Handle this event to disable the navigation or enable it and create required nodes.

If you choose to create the nodes, the BreadCrumbEdit raises the NewNodeAdding event. This event allows you to customize a new node specified by the e.Node parameter. Use the e.Value parameter to obtain a node value.

private void breadCrumbEdit1_Properties_ValidatePath(object sender, DevExpress.XtraEditors.BreadCrumbValidatePathEventArgs e) {
    if (e.Path == "Node 1\\Node 2\\Node 3") e.ValidationResult = DevExpress.XtraEditors.BreadCrumbValidatePathResult.CreateNodes;
    else e.ValidationResult = DevExpress.XtraEditors.BreadCrumbValidatePathResult.Cancel;
private void breadCrumbEdit1_Properties_NewNodeAdding(object sender, DevExpress.XtraEditors.BreadCrumbNewNodeAddingEventArgs e) {
    e.Node.Caption = "My Node 1";
    . . .
    e.Node.PopulateOnDemand = true;

Finally, the RepositoryItemBreadCrumbEdit.QueryChildNodes event fires. This event allows you to dynamically populate the newly created node’s BreadCrumbNode.ChildNodes collection.
