ToolStrip.LayoutCompleted Event


Occurs when the layout of the ToolStrip is complete.

 event EventHandler ^ LayoutCompleted;
public event EventHandler LayoutCompleted;
member this.LayoutCompleted : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event LayoutCompleted As EventHandler 


The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the LayoutCompleted event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type ToolStrip named ToolStrip1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the LayoutCompleted event.

private void ToolStrip1_LayoutCompleted(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStrip.LayoutCompleted event.");

Private Sub ToolStrip1_LayoutCompleted(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStrip1.LayoutCompleted

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStrip.LayoutCompleted event.")

End Sub


When items do not fit within the ToolStrip, an overflow button automatically appears. The Overflow property setting determines whether an item appears in the overflow area always, as needed, or never.

Inspect the Placement property in the LayoutCompleted event to determine whether an item was placed on the main ToolStrip, the overflow ToolStrip, or if it is not currently showing at all. The typical reasons why an item is not displayed are that the item did not fit on the main ToolStrip and its Overflow property was set to Never.
