Remarks

This method returns whether a new group can be created for selected items via the LayoutGroup.CreateGroupForSelectedItems method.

If a single item is selected that represents a group this method returns false. If a single items is selected that represents a regular layout item this method returns true.

If two or more child items are selected this method checks whether they can be combined into a single group. Items can be combined into a group if they have adjacent borders. If the adjacent borders only partially overlap the items cannot be combined into a new group. For instance, in the following image the layoutControlItem1 and layoutControlItem2 items cannot be grouped as their borders partially overlap.
