IProvideStarLayoutInfo Interface

IProvideStarLayoutInfo Interface

.NET Framework 4.6 and 4.5

Provides the data needed for the star layout.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Controls.Ribbon.Primitives
Assembly:  System.Windows.Controls.Ribbon (in System.Windows.Controls.Ribbon.dll)

public interface IProvideStarLayoutInfo : IProvideStarLayoutInfoBase

The IProvideStarLayoutInfo type exposes the following members.

Public propertyStarLayoutCombinationsGets a collection that contains the non-overlapping star combinations.
Public propertyTargetElementGets the UIElement object that this provider targets. (Inherited from IProvideStarLayoutInfoBase.)

Public methodOnInitializeLayoutCalled before the star allocator is measured. (Inherited from IProvideStarLayoutInfoBase.)
Public methodOnStarSizeAllocationCompletedCalled when space allocation is complete.

By default, the panels that lay out the ribbon use star sizing to show the largest possible control variation that can fit in the available space. Star sizing is a convention where the available space is divided evenly between the elements that need to occupy the space. The name derives from the fact that you specify star sizing by using an asterisk (*) in XAML.
