Namespace: DevExpress.XtraEditors

    string path
)
Public Overridable Function SaveLayoutToRegistry(

) As Boolean

path String

A String value specifying the registry key in which the layout should be stored. If an empty string is specified, an exception is raised.

Returns

Type Description

true if saving was successful; otherwise, false.

Remarks

The SaveLayoutToRegistry method creates an registry key to save the current custom TileControl layout at runtime. Later, this layout can be loaded via the TileControl.RestoreLayoutFromRegistry method. You can also save a custom user layout via the TileControl.SaveLayoutToXml and TileControl.SaveLayoutToStream methods.

Saved and restored layouts keep information only about group and item arrangements. Item content and appearance settings are not kept.

TIP

You can utilize the Persistence Behavior or Workspace Manager component to save and restore layouts for all supported DevExpress controls at once.
