public void ExportSvgImage(
    string path,
    SvgImageBoxOptionsExport exportOptions = null


Name Type Description
path String

The path to the file to which the image is exported.

Optional Parameters

Name Type Default Description
exportOptions SvgImageBoxOptionsExport null

An optional object that contains export options.


The ExportSvgImage method does not save the items’ tags (SvgImageItem.Tag) to the output.

To save item apperance settings (SvgImageBox.ItemAppearance and SvgImageItem.Appearance), use the StoreAppearance property. This property is a combination of bit flags that specify whether to save the appearance settings applied to items in the normal, selected, hovered, and disabled states.

The ExportSvgImage method called without the optional exportOptions parameter takes into account the control’s SvgImageBox.OptionsExport.StoreAppearance setting.

svgImageBox1.OptionsExport.StoreAppearance = DevExpress.XtraEditors.AppearanceTypes.All;

You can also set the StoreAppearance setting using the ExportSvgImage method’s exportOptions parameter. In this case, the method ignores the control’s SvgImageBox.OptionsExport.StoreAppearance property.

SvgImageBoxOptionsExport expOptions = new SvgImageBoxOptionsExport();
expOptions.StoreAppearance = AppearanceTypes.Normal | AppearanceTypes.Disabled;
svgImageBox1.ExportSvgImage("svgimagebox.svg", expOptions);
