ToolStripDropDown.AutoClose ToolStripDropDown.AutoClose ToolStripDropDown.AutoClose ToolStripDropDown.AutoClose Property

Definition

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the ToolStripDropDown control should automatically close when it has lost activation.

public:
 property bool AutoClose { bool get(); void set(bool value); };
public bool AutoClose { get; set; }
member this.AutoClose : bool with get, set
Public Property AutoClose As Boolean

Property Value

true if the ToolStripDropDown control automatically closes; otherwise, false. The default is true.

Examples

The following code example demonstrates how to toggle the value of the AutoClose property in response to a check box selection.

// This method toggles the value of the ToolStripDropDown 
// control's AutoClose property.
private void autoCloseCheckBox_CheckedChanged(object sender, EventArgs e)
{   
    this.contextMenuStrip1.AutoClose ^= true;
}
' This method toggles the value of the ToolStripDropDown 
' control's AutoClose property.
Private Sub autoCloseCheckBox_CheckedChanged(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles autoCloseCheckBox.CheckedChanged
   Me.contextMenuStrip1.AutoClose = Me.contextMenuStrip1.AutoClose Xor True
 End Sub

Remarks

If you want a ToolStripDropDown that always stays open, set AutoClose to false.

Note

Consider handling the Closing event instead of setting the AutoClose property. Inspect the CloseReason field in your Closing handler to specify custom closing logic.
