The following code example removes an existing ToolBarButton from a ToolBar control if it exists and adds and inserts four new ToolBarButton objects to the ToolBar. This example requires that you have a Form with a ToolBar control on it.

private void AddToolbarButtons(ToolBar toolBar)
      // If toolBarButton1 in in the collection, remove it.

      // Create three toolbar buttons.
      ToolBarButton tbb1 = new ToolBarButton("tbb1");
      ToolBarButton tbb2 = new ToolBarButton("tbb2");
      ToolBarButton tbb3 = new ToolBarButton("tbb3");

      // Add toolbar buttons to the toolbar.		
      toolBar.Buttons.AddRange(new ToolBarButton[] {tbb2, tbb3});

      // Insert tbb1 into the first position in the collection.
      toolBar.Buttons.Insert(0, tbb1);
