Examples

The following code example creates a ToolBar and three ToolBarButton controls, assigns the buttons to the toolbar, and sets some of the buttons' common properties. This code requires that a MenuItem, ImageList, ToolTip and a Form have been created and the ImageList has at least one Image assigned to it.

public:
   void InitializeMyToolBar()
   {
      // Create the ToolBar, ToolBarButton controls, and menus.
      ToolBarButton^ toolBarButton1 = gcnew ToolBarButton( "Open" );
      ToolBarButton^ toolBarButton2 = gcnew ToolBarButton;
      ToolBarButton^ toolBarButton3 = gcnew ToolBarButton;
      ToolBar^ toolBar1 = gcnew ToolBar;
      MenuItem^ menuItem1 = gcnew MenuItem( "Print" );
      array<MenuItem^>^ temp1 = {menuItem1};
      System::Windows::Forms::ContextMenu^ contextMenu1 =
         gcnew System::Windows::Forms::ContextMenu( temp1 );
      
      // Add the ToolBarButton controls to the ToolBar.
      toolBar1->Buttons->Add( toolBarButton1 );
      toolBar1->Buttons->Add( toolBarButton2 );
      toolBar1->Buttons->Add( toolBarButton3 );
      
      // Assign an ImageList to the ToolBar and show ToolTips.
      toolBar1->ImageList = imageList1;
      toolBar1->ShowToolTips = true;
      
      /* Assign ImageIndex, ContextMenu, Text, ToolTip, and 
         Style properties of the ToolBarButton controls. */
      toolBarButton2->Style = ToolBarButtonStyle::Separator;
      toolBarButton3->Text = "Print";
      toolBarButton3->Style = ToolBarButtonStyle::DropDownButton;
      toolBarButton3->ToolTipText = "Print";
      toolBarButton3->ImageIndex = 0;
      toolBarButton3->DropDownMenu = contextMenu1;
      
      // Add the ToolBar to a form.
      Controls->Add( toolBar1 );
   }
public void InitializeMyToolBar()
 {
    // Create the ToolBar, ToolBarButton controls, and menus.
    ToolBarButton toolBarButton1 = new ToolBarButton("Open");
    ToolBarButton toolBarButton2 = new ToolBarButton();
    ToolBarButton toolBarButton3 = new ToolBarButton();
    ToolBar toolBar1 = new ToolBar();
    MenuItem menuItem1 = new MenuItem("Print");
    ContextMenu contextMenu1 = new ContextMenu(new MenuItem[]{menuItem1});

     
    // Add the ToolBarButton controls to the ToolBar.
    toolBar1.Buttons.Add(toolBarButton1);
    toolBar1.Buttons.Add(toolBarButton2);
    toolBar1.Buttons.Add(toolBarButton3);
 
    // Assign an ImageList to the ToolBar and show ToolTips.
    toolBar1.ImageList = imageList1;
    toolBar1.ShowToolTips = true;
 
    /* Assign ImageIndex, ContextMenu, Text, ToolTip, and 
       Style properties of the ToolBarButton controls. */
    toolBarButton2.Style = ToolBarButtonStyle.Separator;
    toolBarButton3.Text = "Print";
    toolBarButton3.Style = ToolBarButtonStyle.DropDownButton;
    toolBarButton3.ToolTipText = "Print";
    toolBarButton3.ImageIndex = 0;
    toolBarButton3.DropDownMenu = contextMenu1;
 
    // Add the ToolBar to a form.
    Controls.Add(toolBar1);
 }
 
   Public Sub InitializeMyToolBar()
       ' Create the ToolBar, ToolBarButton controls, and menus.
       Dim toolBarButton1 As New ToolBarButton("Open")
       Dim toolBarButton2 As New ToolBarButton()
       Dim toolBarButton3 As New ToolBarButton()
       Dim toolBar1 As New ToolBar()

Dim contextMenu1 As New ContextMenu(New MenuItem(){menuItem1})
       
       ' Add the ToolBarButton controls to the ToolBar.
       toolBar1.Buttons.Add(toolBarButton1)
       toolBar1.Buttons.Add(toolBarButton2)
       toolBar1.Buttons.Add(toolBarButton3)
       
       ' Assign an ImageList to the ToolBar and show ToolTips.
       toolBar1.ImageList = imageList1
       toolBar1.ShowToolTips = True
       
       ' Assign ImageIndex, ContextMenu, Text, ToolTip, and
       ' Style properties of the ToolBarButton controls. 
       toolBarButton2.Style = ToolBarButtonStyle.Separator
       toolBarButton3.Text = "Print"
       toolBarButton3.Style = ToolBarButtonStyle.DropDownButton
       toolBarButton3.ToolTipText = "Print"
       toolBarButton3.ImageIndex = 0
       toolBarButton3.DropDownMenu = contextMenu1
       
       ' Add the ToolBar to a form.
       Controls.Add(toolBar1)
   End Sub

Remarks

If the button Style is set to DropDownButton you can specify a MenuItem to be displayed when the drop-down button is pressed. If the style is set to ToolBarButtonStyle.Separator, the toolbar button appears as a button separator and not as a button. The ToolBarButtonStyle.ToggleButton style causes the toolbar button to act like a toggle button; it can be in an on or off state.
