Property Value

Type Default Description
String null

A string value that represents the name of the current Action’s image.


Use the ImageName property to specify the name of the image that will be displayed for the current Action. By default, this property is not set. You can set a value in the Controller’s constructor or Designer. This value will be saved to the Application Model‘s IModelAction node. You can change this value in the Model Editor. In a UI, the value which is specified in the Application Model’s .xafml file loaded last will be displayed. For information on the order of Application Model differences loading, refer to the Application Model Basics topic.

When setting a value to this property, the ActionBase.Changed event is raised.

To learn the concept by which XAF displays images for Actions and other UI elements, refer to the Add and Replace Icons topic.
