This example demonstrates how to implement a custom Detail View Item, and display it on all Detail Views by default. This Detail View Item will show an image representing the current business object (the same image is used within the navigation control). A Windows control will be used to display this Detail View Item. Therefore, this feature will be available in Windows Forms applications only.
See code in the ClassIconDetailItem.cs and WinModule.cs (ClassIconDetailItem.vb and WinModule.vb) files.
For details, refer to the How to: Implement a Detail View Item topic in XAF documentation.
