Property Value

Type Description

A string value which represents the name of the group within the navigation control.


If the group specified by this property does not currently exist, it is created, and an item is added to it.

If this property is not specified, the default first-level navigation item name is used. This name is specified by the NavigationItemAttribute.DefaultGroupName property.

Since the structure of navigation items is initially generated in the Application Model‘s IModelRootNavigationItems node, you can change the required group name via the Model Editor.
