Can't set NavigationBar.CanExpandMultiple to true

Posted 6 years ago by Avatar Jim Foye

I am unable to set this property to true. According to the docs, true is the default value. If I just create instance of NavigationBar in a new user control, and look at CanExpandMultiple in the VS properties window, I can see that it is unchecked. If I check it, then this gets added to the markup:


But -- the checkbox in the VS properties window is immediately unchecked! I know that sounds weird, but it's happening.

At runtime I am unable to expand more than one pane, so the added markup is having no effect.

Hi Jim,

Sorry but that is an inherited property from a base class and isn't really intended for use within NavigationBar.  It's more for ExplorerBar where you can optionally have multiple items expanded.  In NavigationBar, that concept isn't possible.
