BindingNavigator.AddStandardItems Method

Adds the standard set of navigation items to the BindingNavigator control.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public virtual void AddStandardItems()

The AddStandardItems method adds the standard set of user interface ToolStripItem objects to the BindingNavigator tool strip for basic navigation operations, such as Move First, Move Last, and Add New.

Override AddStandardItems in derived classes to define additional or alternative tool strip items. To ensure optimal design-time support for your derived class, make sure each item has a meaningful value in its Name property. At design time, this will be used to generate a unique name for the corresponding member variable. The item's Name property will then be updated to match the name given to the member variable.


This method does not explicitly remove any previously existing items from the BindingNavigator, but does set new values for the MoveNextItem, MovePreviousItem, MoveFirstItem, MoveLastItem, PositionItem, CountItem, AddNewItem and DeleteItem properties. Also AddStandardItems does not suspend layout while items are being added.
