ToolStripItem.Click Event

Note: This event is new in the .NET Framework version 2.0.

Occurs when the ToolStripItem is clicked.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public event EventHandler Click
/** @event */
public void add_Click (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_Click (EventHandler value)

JScript supports the use of events, but not the declaration of new ones.

The Click event passes an EventArgs to its event handler, so it only indicates that a click has occurred. If you need more specific mouse information (button, number of clicks, wheel rotation, or location), use the MouseDown and MouseUp events which pass a MouseEventArgs to the event handler.

A double-click is determined by the mouse settings of the user's operating system. The user can set the time between clicks of a mouse button that should be considered a double-click rather than two clicks. The Click event is raised every time a control is double-clicked. For example, if you have two event handlers for the Click and DoubleClick events of a Form, the Click and DoubleClick events are raised when the form is double-clicked and both methods are called. If an item is double-clicked that does not support the DoubleClick event, the Click event might be raised twice.

The following code example demonstrates how to set the Text, Overflow, and TextDirection properties, and handle the Click event. To run this example, paste the following code into a form that contains a ToolStrip named movingToolStrip and call InitializeMovingToolStrip in the form's constructor or Load event handler.

internal ToolStripButton changeDirectionButton;

private void InitializeMovingToolStrip()
{
    movingToolStrip = new ToolStrip();

    changeDirectionButton = new ToolStripButton();

    movingToolStrip.AutoSize = true;
    movingToolStrip.RenderMode = ToolStripRenderMode.System;

    changeDirectionButton.TextDirection = ToolStripTextDirection.Vertical270;
    changeDirectionButton.Overflow = ToolStripItemOverflow.Never;
    changeDirectionButton.Text = "Change Alignment";
        movingToolStrip.Items.Add(changeDirectionButton);
}


public void changeDirectionButton_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
{

    ToolStripItem item = (ToolStripItem)sender;

    if (item.TextDirection == ToolStripTextDirection.Vertical270 || item.TextDirection == ToolStripTextDirection.Vertical90)
    {
        item.TextDirection = ToolStripTextDirection.Horizontal;
        movingToolStrip.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Top;
    }
    else
    {
        item.TextDirection = ToolStripTextDirection.Vertical270;
        movingToolStrip.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Left;
    }

}
