How to: Create Toggle Buttons in ToolStrip Controls

When a user clicks a toggle button, it appears sunken and retains the sunken appearance until the user clicks the button again.

To create a toggling ToolStripButton

  • Use code such as the following code example. This code assumes that your form contains a ToolStrip control, and that its Items collection contains a ToolStripButton called toolStripButton1. It also assumes that you have an event handler called toolStripButton1_CheckedChanged.

    [Visual Basic]

    toolStripButton.CheckOnClick = True
    toolStripButton.CheckedChanged AddressOf _
    EventHandler(toolStripButton_CheckedChanged);
    

    [C#]

    toolStripButton.CheckOnClick = true;
    toolStripButton.CheckedChanged += new _
    EventHandler(toolStripButton_CheckedChanged);
