ToolBar.DropDownArrows Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether drop-down buttons on a toolbar display down arrows.

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

public bool DropDownArrows { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if drop-down toolbar buttons display down arrows; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When DropDownArrows is set to false, no down arrows display on drop-down style toolbar buttons. When the user clicks the drop-down button on the toolbar, the menu drops down for selection. When the drop-down arrow is displayed, the user must press the down arrow to display the menu.

The following code example creates a ToolBar control, sets some of its common properties, and adds it to a Form. Delegates are also added to the ButtonClick and ButtonDropDown events. This example requires that a ToolBar named toolBar1 and an ImageList named imageList1 have been declared.


private void AddToolBar()
{
   // Add a toolbar and set some of its properties.
   toolBar1 = new ToolBar();
   toolBar1.Appearance = System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarAppearance.Flat;
   toolBar1.BorderStyle = System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.None;
   toolBar1.Buttons.Add(this.toolBarButton1);
   toolBar1.ButtonSize = new System.Drawing.Size(24, 24);
   toolBar1.Divider = true;
   toolBar1.DropDownArrows = true;
   toolBar1.ImageList = this.imageList1;
   toolBar1.ShowToolTips = true;
   toolBar1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 25);
   toolBar1.TabIndex = 0;
   toolBar1.TextAlign = System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarTextAlign.Right;
   toolBar1.Wrappable = false;

   // Add handlers for the ButtonClick and ButtonDropDown events.
   toolBar1.ButtonDropDown += 
     new ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler(toolBar1_ButtonDropDown);
   toolBar1.ButtonClick += 
     new ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler(toolBar1_ButtonClicked);

   // Add the toolbar to the form.
   this.Controls.Add(toolBar1);
}
