Examples

The following code example creates a ToolBar control, sets some of its common properties, and adds it to a Form. Delegates are also added to the ButtonClick and ButtonDropDown events. This example requires that a ToolBar named toolBar1 and an ImageList named imageList1 have been declared.

void AddToolBar()
{
   
   // Add a toolbar and set some of its properties.
   toolBar1 = gcnew ToolBar;
   toolBar1->Appearance = System::Windows::Forms::ToolBarAppearance::Flat;
   toolBar1->BorderStyle = System::Windows::Forms::BorderStyle::None;
   toolBar1->Buttons->Add( this->toolBarButton1 );
   toolBar1->ButtonSize = System::Drawing::Size( 24, 24 );
   toolBar1->Divider = true;
   toolBar1->DropDownArrows = true;
   toolBar1->ImageList = this->imageList1;
   toolBar1->ShowToolTips = true;
   toolBar1->Size = System::Drawing::Size( 292, 25 );
   toolBar1->TabIndex = 0;
   toolBar1->TextAlign = System::Windows::Forms::ToolBarTextAlign::Right;
   toolBar1->Wrappable = false;
   
   // Add handlers for the ButtonClick and ButtonDropDown events.
   toolBar1->ButtonDropDown += gcnew ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler( this, &MyToolBar::toolBar1_ButtonDropDown );
   toolBar1->ButtonClick += gcnew ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler( this, &MyToolBar::toolBar1_ButtonClicked );
   
   // Add the toolbar to the form.
   this->Controls->Add( toolBar1 );
}
private void AddToolBar()
{
   // Add a toolbar and set some of its properties.
   toolBar1 = new ToolBar();
   toolBar1.Appearance = System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarAppearance.Flat;
   toolBar1.BorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.None;
   toolBar1.Buttons.Add(this.toolBarButton1);
   toolBar1.ButtonSize = new System.Drawing.Size(24, 24);
   toolBar1.Divider = true;
   toolBar1.DropDownArrows = true;
   toolBar1.ImageList = this.imageList1;
   toolBar1.ShowToolTips = true;
   toolBar1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 25);
   toolBar1.TabIndex = 0;
   toolBar1.TextAlign = System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarTextAlign.Right;
   toolBar1.Wrappable = false;
   
   // Add handlers for the ButtonClick and ButtonDropDown events.
   toolBar1.ButtonDropDown += 
     new ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler(toolBar1_ButtonDropDown);
   toolBar1.ButtonClick += 
     new ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler(toolBar1_ButtonClicked);

   // Add the toolbar to the form.
   this.Controls.Add(toolBar1);
}
Private Sub AddToolBar()
   ' Add a toolbar and set some of its properties.
   toolBar1 = New ToolBar()
   toolBar1.Appearance = System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarAppearance.Flat
   toolBar1.BorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.None
   toolBar1.Buttons.Add(Me.toolBarButton1)
   toolBar1.ButtonSize = New System.Drawing.Size(24, 24)
   toolBar1.Divider = True
   toolBar1.DropDownArrows = True
   toolBar1.ImageList = Me.imageList1
   toolBar1.ShowToolTips = True
   toolBar1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(292, 25)
   toolBar1.TabIndex = 0
   toolBar1.TextAlign = System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarTextAlign.Right
   toolBar1.Wrappable = False

   ' Add handlers for the ButtonClick and ButtonDropDown events.
   AddHandler toolBar1.ButtonDropDown, AddressOf toolBar1_ButtonDropDown
   AddHandler toolBar1.ButtonClick, AddressOf toolBar1_ButtonClicked

   ' Add the toolbar to the form.
   Me.Controls.Add(toolBar1)
End Sub

Remarks

When AutoSize is set to true, the ToolBar control sizes itself to accommodate the toolbar buttons, based upon the button size, the number of ToolBarButton objects it contains, and the DockStyle of the toolbar.
