NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public bool HotTrackItems { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Boolean false

true if the item hot-tracking is enabled; otherwise, false.



The CheckedListBoxControl embedded in the dropdown window is used to toggle item check states. The control also supports the item selection feature, which allows for the visual highlighting (selection) of one or more items. When one or more items are selected, you can toggle the check states of all selected items at once by pressing the SPACE key or clicking a check box of any selected item.

Dedicated options provided by the RepositoryItemCheckedComboBoxEdit class allow you to enable the item hot-tracking feature and then activate/deactivate automatic item selection on hot-tracking.

To learn more about the difference between the item states, see the Checked States vs. Selection vs. Hot-Tracking section in the CheckedListBoxControl topic.


Item hot-tracking is forcibly disabled in multiple item selection mode. See RepositoryItemCheckedComboBoxEdit.AllowMultiSelect.

If item hot-tracking is enabled, items in the embedded CheckedListBoxControl are hot-tracked when end-users hover over them. You can enable or disable automatic selection of a hot-tracked item. To learn more, see the RepositoryItemCheckedComboBoxEdit.HotTrackSelectMode property description.
