ModelDetailViewLayoutNodesGenerator Class

A Nodes Generator that generates the content of the IModelViewLayout node.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Model.NodeGenerators

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v21.2.dll


public class ModelDetailViewLayoutNodesGenerator :


This class is a ModelNodesGeneratorBase descendant, that generates child nodes of the Views | View | Layout node. It creates the layout structure of the current View. The rules of generating a default layout are described in the View Items Layout Customization topic.

To customize the content of the Layout node, implement a Generator Updater for this Nodes Generator by inheriting the ModelNodesGeneratorUpdater<T> class in the following manner:

public class Updater : ModelNodesGeneratorUpdater<ModelDetailViewLayoutNodesGenerator> {
    public override void UpdateNode(ModelNode node) {
        // Cast the 'node' parameter to IModelLayout
        // to access the Layout node.

The Generator Updater above should be registered within the overridden ModuleBase.AddGeneratorUpdaters method. The complete example of implementing a Generator Updater for this Nodes Generator is provided in the How to: Implement a View Item topic.

For a complete list of available Nodes Generators, refer to the Built-in Nodes Generators topic.
