Quick Start


On this page:

Create professional Desktop's Explorer-style navigation control

Use WebExplorerPane control to quickly create rich and fully-functional Desktop's Explorer-like navigation user interface in a professional way. Unlike "traditional Panel or Navigation controls", WebExplorerPane is designed with elegant architecture and object model as well as specialized user interface for each element. That means, you no longer require any workaround in order to achieve a modern navigation control which is not only rich in styles, but also in every functions and behaviors.

Dramatically enhances user experience through expand/collapse pane with animation.

WebExplorerPane lets you determine which pane is more related to the selected object by setting the Collapse property. WebExplorerPane will automatically manage the animation behavior (EnableAnimation set to True) when switching between one navigation to another just like desktop's explorer pane behavior. WebExplorerPane also maintains every state of the pane (WebExplorerBar), such as the currently selected item and properly restore them whether the pane (WebExplorerBar) is collapsed or restored.

Increase developer's productivity through advanced flexibility and extensibility

WebExplorerPane sets a new standard in navigation user interface by providing advanced features for great flexibility and extensibility. You can choose one of three ContentMode for each Bar's contents, or having all of them to use the global setting specified in PaneSettings. The UseItems ContentMode enables you to quickly build navigation links by manipulating the Items collection. For better extensibility, you can also use InlineContent mode and put any kind of server controls.
