Creates a new group with the default layout type and the specified caption, and adds it to the current group.

Namespace: DevExpress.XtraLayout

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraLayout.v20.1.dll

Declaration

public LayoutGroup AddGroup(
    string text
)
Public Function AddGroup(
    text As String
) As LayoutGroup

Parameters

Name Type Description
text String

The group's caption. This value is used to initialize to the BaseLayoutItem.Text property.

Returns

Type Description
LayoutGroup

The newly added group.

Remarks

The default layout type is determined by the LayoutGroup.DefaultLayoutType property. By default, it is set to LayoutType.Vertical, so the new group is positioned at the bottom of the current group. If this property is set to LayoutType.Horizontal, the new group is positioned at the current group's right edge.

To add layout items to the new group use the LayoutGroup.AddItem and BaseLayoutItem.Move methods.
