Examples

The following example instantiates a ToolBar and three ToolBarButton controls, assigns the buttons to the toolbar, and sets some of the buttons' common properties. This code assumes a MenuItem, ImageList, ToolTip and a Form have been instantiated 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;

      // Add the ToolBar to a form.
      Controls->Add( toolBar1 );
   }

    // 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");

    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);

Remarks

This enumeration is used by members such as ToolBarButton.Style.

The toolbar button appearance is determined by the Appearance property of the toolbar. Setting the Appearance property to Flat will give the toolbar and its buttons a flat appearance. As the mouse pointer moves over the buttons, they take on a three-dimensional appearance. Also, when the toolbar has a flat appearance, button separators appear as a line rather than as a space between the buttons.
