Getting Started

This section explains how to add SfGroupBarItem and set it’s content in SfGroupBar.

Adding SfGroupBar Control

Create a Universal Windows Platform project in Visual Studio and refer to the Syncfusion.SfGroupBar.UWP assembly.

1.Include the namespace Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Navigation for Syncfusion.SfGroupBar.UWP assembly in MainPage.xaml

<Page xmlns="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml/presentation"

xmlns:x="http://schemas.microsoft.com/winfx/2006/xaml"

xmlns:navigation="using:Syncfusion.UI.Xaml.Controls.Navigation">

2.Now add the SfGroupBar control with a required optimal name using the included namespace

<navigation:SfGroupBar x:Name="groupBar"/>

This will just display GroupBar with Collapse button.

Adding Items to SfGroupBar

Add items SfGroupBarItem as given below. Use the property Header to set display headers for group bar item.

<navigation:SfGroupBar>

<navigation:SfGroupBarItem Header="MailBox"/>

<navigation:SfGroupBarItem Header="Contacts"/>

<navigation:SfGroupBarItem Header="Tasks"/>

<navigation:SfGroupBarItem Header="Notes"/>

</navigation:SfGroupBar>

Setting Icon for SfGroupBar Items

Use the property ImagePath to set image as Path elements. It can be set as follows:

<navigation:SfGroupBar Margin="5 0 0 5">

<navigation:SfGroupBarItem Header="MailBox">
