Object Type Path to DrawAdornerLayer


A LayoutControl‘s adorner layer is always on top and is used to render customization visual elements, such as item indexes in the flow layout group.

By default, this layer is not displayed. If you set the DrawAdornerLayer property to true and remotely run an application that uses the LayoutControl, you can experience display issues. To resolve these issues, set the DrawAdornerLayer property to false or Default.
