Property Value

true if the toolbar adjusts its size automatically, based on the size of the buttons and dock style; otherwise, false. The default is true.

When AutoSize is set to true, the ToolBar control sizes itself to accommodate the toolbar buttons, based upon the button size, the number of ToolBarButton objects it contains, and the DockStyle of the toolbar.

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);
}

private void AddToolBar()
{
    // Add a toolbar and set some of its properties.
    toolBar1 = new ToolBar();
    toolBar1.set_Appearance(System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarAppearance.Flat);
    toolBar1.set_BorderStyle(System.Windows.Forms.BorderStyle.None);
    toolBar1.get_Buttons().Add(this.toolBarButton1);
    toolBar1.set_ButtonSize(new System.Drawing.Size(24, 24));
    toolBar1.set_Divider(true);
    toolBar1.set_DropDownArrows(true);
    toolBar1.set_ImageList(this.imageList1);
    toolBar1.set_ShowToolTips(true);
    toolBar1.set_Size(new System.Drawing.Size(292, 25));
    toolBar1.set_TabIndex(0);
    toolBar1.set_TextAlign(System.Windows.Forms.ToolBarTextAlign.Right);
    toolBar1.set_Wrappable(false);
    // Add handlers for the ButtonClick and ButtonDropDown events.
    toolBar1.add_ButtonDropDown(new ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler
        (toolBar1_ButtonDropDown));
    toolBar1.add_ButtonClick(new ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler
        (toolBar1_ButtonClicked));
    // Add the toolbar to the form.
    this.get_Controls().Add(toolBar1);
} //AddToolBar
