I'm not sure I'm in the right place to post this message.
I'm currently working on migrating some windows forms into WPF usercontrols.
One of this form contains an UltraExplorerBar which is very basic : three container controls ; in each container, there is a treeview.
I would like to know what is the best infragistics wpf control to transform the UltraExplorerBar.
I noticed that the style of the UltraExplorerBar is very similar to the xamOutlookBar.
I made a sample and the only things that may be a problem are these two :
is there a way to mask the bottom of the xamOutlookBar, the part with the add/remove buttons / show fewer buttons / ... feature ? (I dont want users to have access to this because my three groups cant be modify)
is there a way to mask the header of a group when I click on the corresponding button ? For my application, having twice the same information is not wanted ?
I just looked deeper in the UltraExplorerBar options and noticed that the "Outlook style" is an option of the Control Style (behavior) of the bar.
To resume, what I need is the equivalent of the "ListBar" style.
I have been looking into your requirement and since there is no such built-in functionality I tried a couple of different controls and also tried to retemplate the XamOutlookBar, however I wasn’t able to achieve a WPF ListBar. If you want I can submit a Product Idea on your behalf in our internals system so such a behavior may appear in a future volume release. I can also suggest using a WindowsFormsHost in order to use the UltraExplorerBar in WPF.
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance on the matter.
I am still following your thread. I am just checking the progress of this issue and if you need any more assistance.
Petar/Infragistics support, its now the end of 2014 and I have the same question. In the latest version of WPF controls (14.2) does XamOutlookBar have an ability to expand more than one 'Group' at a time similar to UltraExplorerBar control for WinForms? If not, do you have any plans to extend it in the near future? I know you recommended to use a WinFormsHost controls but how will this function in MVVM WPF application? We need an ability for WPF binding in the control. Attached is the pic of what we're trying to achieve. Thanks.
