Edit Mode in WPF Breadcrumb (HierarchyNavigator)

4 May 20211 minute to read

This feature allows you to easily edit a navigation path by setting the IsEnableEditMode property to true. The filter support is available in edit mode, which suggests matching nodes based on the path entered in the editor like the Windows Explorer.

To start the edit mode, click HierarchyNavigatorItemsControl and enter a navigation path that will display a drop-down list of filtered navigation paths, and then select the expected navigation path.


If you enter an incorrect path or text in the editor, the dropdown suggestion list will be closed.
