Assembly: DevExpress.XtraLayout.v22.1.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.Win.Navigation


public bool IsUpdateLocked { get; }

Property Value

Type Description

true if the layout item is locked; otherwise, false.


The BaseLayoutItem.BeginInit method locks the layout item until the BaseLayoutItem.EndInit method is called. Any changes made after a call to the BaseLayoutItem.BeginInit method don’t force the layout item to update itself. The BaseLayoutItem.EndInit method invalidates and unlocks the layout item, so any further changes are applied immediately.

The IsUpdateLocked property returns true if the layout item or layout control has been locked by the BaseLayoutItem.BeginInit/LayoutControl.BeginUpdate method and not yet unlocked by the BaseLayoutItem.EndInit/LayoutControl.EndUpdate method.
