public LayoutGroup CreateGroupForSelectedItems()


Type Description

A LayoutGroup descendant that specifies the group that has been created.


This method creates a new group and adds the currently selected child items to this group. The new group is then selected.

To select and unselect specific items use the BaseLayoutItem.Selected property. All the selected items that belong to a group can be accessed via the LayoutGroup.SelectedItems collection.

If there is no selected item in the current group, the new group will not be created and the CreateGroupForSelectedItems method will return null. To check whether a new group can be created use the LayoutGroup.CanGroupSelectedItems method.
