WebApplicationStyleManager.EnableNavigationGroupsUpperCase Property

Specifies whether or not the upper case is used for navigation group captions in the new web UI.

Namespace: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Web

Assembly: DevExpress.ExpressApp.Web.v18.2.dll

Declaration

public static bool EnableNavigationGroupsUpperCase { get; set; }
Public Shared Property EnableNavigationGroupsUpperCase As Boolean

Property Value

Type Description
Boolean

true, if the upper case is enabled for navigation group captions; otherwise, false.

Remarks

By default, in XAF ASP.NET applications, the upper case is enabled for navigation group captions. The following code snippet demonstrates how to disable it.

protected void Session_Start(Object sender, EventArgs e) {
    //...
    WebApplication.Instance.SwitchToNewStyle();
    WebApplicationStyleManager.EnableNavigationGroupsUpperCase = false;
    WebApplication.Instance.Setup();
    WebApplication.Instance.Start();
}

This property has effect when used before the application main page is shown. You can access it in the Session_Start method located in the Global.asax file, after the WebApplication.SwitchToNewStyle method is called.

The result is demonstrated in the image below.

Tip

You can also disable the upper case for the grid column, layout group and navigation group captions at once, using the WebApplicationStyleManager.EnableUpperCase property.
