Property Value

Type Description
LayoutGroup

A LayoutGroup or its descendant that owns the current item.

Remarks

Layout items are displayed within layout item groups. The Parent property returns the layout group that owns the current item. For the root group this property returns null.

If a new value is assigned to the Parent property the layout item will be removed from its current group and added to the new group. If null is assigned to the Parent property the item is removed from its parent by calling the LayoutGroup.Remove method. See this topic for more information.

To get the LayoutControl that owns the layout item use the BaseLayoutItem.Owner property.
