WinForms Navigation - Accordion Control (Coming soon in v15.1)

Thinking Out Loud
21 May 2015

Webster defines an Accordion as:

a portable keyboard wind instrument in which the wind is forced past free reeds by means of a hand-operated bellows

DevExpress defines an Accordion as:

A new WinForms Control that extends the capabilities found in our existing XtraNavBar control. The Accordion Control allows you to create a full-featured NavBar with multiple items (actions). Items can be combined into groups. Groups can contain nested groups so you can create an advanced hierarchical navigation menu.

Features include:

  • Unlimited number of hierarchy levels
  • Items can display images and text
  • Context buttons
  • Item headers can display custom controls
  • Item selection
  • Group expansion/collapse animation (one or multiple groups can be expanded simultaneously)
  • Built-in search

WinForms Navigation - Accordion Style NavBar

Both Accordions are cool but only one runs on Windows. Tell us what you think - is this something you might use in your next WinForms app?
