Remarks

The StoreText property specifies whether to save/load captions of layout items and groups when you call the SaveLayoutTo… and RestoreLayoutFrom… methods. The text settings are specified by the following options:

Initially, when the StoreText property is set to Default, (de)serialization of these settings is enabled.

(De)Serialization of layout item captions is disabled in the cases below:

  • The StoreText property is set to False.
  • The StoreText property is set to Default and all of the following properties are set to false: RestoreLayoutItemText and RestoreLayoutItemCustomizationFormText (the default values of these properties are true). Note that these properties are now hidden at design time; they are left for backward compatibility.

When you create localizable applications that support multiple cultures, disable (de)serialization of layout item captions.
