Specifies whether the View for which a View Controller is intended must be root, nested or any.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.v22.2.dll

NuGet Package: DevExpress.ExpressApp


public Nesting TargetViewNesting { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Default Description
Nesting Any

A Nesting enumeration value identifying a View kind.


View Controllers are activated for both Windows and Frames. However, you can specify the View kind to provide a View Controller activation within the Window or Frame via the TargetViewNesting property.


The TargetViewNesting property affects only ViewController’s activation. Controller.FrameAssigned and other events that are irrelevant to the view nesting always fire.
