ToolStripItem.LocationChanged Event


Occurs when the location of a ToolStripItem is updated.

 event EventHandler ^ LocationChanged;
public event EventHandler LocationChanged;
member this.LocationChanged : EventHandler 
Public Custom Event LocationChanged As EventHandler 

Event Type



The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the LocationChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from ToolStripItem, such as a ToolStripButton or ToolStripMenuItem. Then name the instance ToolStripItem1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the LocationChanged event.

private void ToolStripItem1_LocationChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStripItem.LocationChanged event.");
Private Sub ToolStripItem1_LocationChanged(sender as Object, e as EventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStripItem1.LocationChanged

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStripItem.LocationChanged event.")

End Sub


This event is raised if the ToolStripItem is updated by either a programmatic modification or through interaction.


Changing the Enabled property of a ToolStrip does not raise the LocationChanged event. Raise this event with specific property settings.
