A BaseLayoutItem descendant which represents the layout item to add to the collection.


Type Description

The added layout item.


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

To assign a control to the new LayoutControlItem object, use its LayoutControlItem.Control property.
