Namespace: DevExpress.XtraNavBar

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraNavBar.v21.2.dll


public int NavigationPaneGroupClientHeight { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description


An integer value specifying the default minimum height of the active group’s client area when the “NavigationPane” view is applied.


When the “NavigationPane” view is applied to a navbar, the contents of only one group can be displayed within a NavBar at a time. Other groups are represented by their buttons at the bottom of the control.


The NavigationPaneGroupClientHeight property controls the default minimum height of the active group’s client area.

If you change the height of the NavBarControl when this view is applied, the NavBar prevents the active group’s height from being set to a value less than the specified minimum height. It tries to maintain the specified minimum by hiding available group buttons to the Overflow panel.

For each group, however, you can provide a greater value for the minimum height than the default one. For this purpose, use the group’s NavBarGroup.GroupClientHeight property. Setting the NavBarGroup.GroupClientHeight property to a smaller value has no effect.
