ModelCreatableItemsGenerator Class

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

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.SystemModule

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v18.2.dll


public class ModelCreatableItemsGenerator :
Public Class ModelCreatableItemsGenerator
    Inherits ModelNodesGeneratorBase


This class is a ModelNodesGeneratorBase descendant, that generates child nodes of the CreatableItems node. It adds an IModelCreatableItem node for each business class having the IModelClass.IsCreatableItem property set to True.

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

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