ModelActionContainersGenerator Class

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

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.SystemModule

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v23.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.ExpressApp


public class ModelActionContainersGenerator :


This class is a ModelNodesGeneratorBase descendant, that generates child nodes of the ActionDesign | ActionToContainerMapping node. It collects IModelAction.Category values specified for ActionDesign | Actions nodes and generates IModelActionContainer node for each category found. Each ActionContainer node contains IModelActionLink nodes specifying Actions linked to the Action Container.

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

public class Updater : ModelNodesGeneratorUpdater<NavigationItemNodeGenerator> {
    public override void UpdateNode(ModelNode node) {
        // Cast the 'node' parameter to IModelActionToContainerMapping
        // to access the ActionToContainerMapping node.

The Generator Updater above should be registered within the overridden ModuleBase.AddGeneratorUpdaters method.

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