Property Value

Type Description

A LayoutControlGroup object which represents the root group.


Layout groups can form nesting layouts: groups can own other groups which in turn can also have child groups and so on. A layout group’s immediate parent group is determined by the LayoutGroup.Parent property.

The Root property allows the group’s root group - the topmost parent group, to be obtained. The root panel isn’t owned by any layout group.


The Root property can be specified when the layout control is being initialized.
