Property Value

Type Default Description
Object

null

An image collection (DevExpress.Utils.ImageCollection or DevExpress.Utils.SvgImageCollection).

Remarks

The HTML formatting feature allows you to format the form's caption using a set of HTML tags. To specify a formatted caption, use the XtraForm.HtmlText property.

When you compose an HTML string, you can use the image tag to insert an image from an image collection and project's resources into the text.

To insert an image from an image collection, do the following:

  • Create an image collection (ImageCollection or SvgImageCollection) and populate it with images.
  • Assign the collection to the HtmlImages property.
  • When you use the image tag, address a target image by its name (image names can be obtained from the image collection).
this.HtmlImages = imageCollection1;
this.HtmlText = "Person <image=person>";

See HTML Text Formatting to learn more.

To allow text to be formatted using HTML tags, ensure title bar skinning is enabled.
