Examples

The following 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 assumes 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

This enumeration is used by members such as ToolBar.Appearance.

Set the Appearance property of the toolbar to ToolBarAppearance.Flat to give the toolbar and its buttons a flat appearance. As the mouse pointer moves over the buttons, their appearance changes to three-dimensional. Button separators appear as lines rather than spaces between the buttons when the toolbar has a flat appearance.
