ToolBar.ImageList Property

Gets or sets the collection of images available to the toolbar button controls.

[Visual Basic]
Public Property ImageList As ImageList
[C#]
public ImageList ImageList {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property ImageList* get_ImageList();
public: __property void set_ImageList(ImageList*);
[JScript]
public function get ImageList() : ImageList;
public function set ImageList(ImageList);

Property Value

An ImageList that contains images available to the ToolBarButton controls. The default is a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic).

Remarks

If you create an ImageList and assign it to the ImageList property, you can assign an image from the collection to the ToolBarButton controls by assigning the image's index value to the ImageIndex property of the toolbar button.

Example

[Visual Basic, C#, C++] The following 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 assumes a ToolBar named toolBar1 and an ImageList named imageList1 have been declared.

[Visual Basic] 
Private Sub 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(Me.toolBarButton1)
   toolBar1.ButtonSize = New System.Drawing.Size(24, 24)
   toolBar1.Divider = True
   toolBar1.DropDownArrows = True
   toolBar1.ImageList = Me.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.
   AddHandler toolBar1.ButtonDropDown, AddressOf toolBar1_ButtonDropDown
   AddHandler toolBar1.ButtonClick, AddressOf toolBar1_ButtonClicked

   ' Add the toolbar to the form.
   Me.Controls.Add(toolBar1)
End Sub

[C#] 
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);
}

[C++] 
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 = System::Drawing::Size(24, 24);
        toolBar1->Divider = true;
        toolBar1->DropDownArrows = true;
        toolBar1->ImageList = this->imageList1;
        toolBar1->ShowToolTips = true;
        toolBar1->Size = 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(this, &MyToolBar::toolBar1_ButtonDropDown);
        toolBar1->ButtonClick += new ToolBarButtonClickEventHandler(this, &MyToolBar::toolBar1_ButtonClicked);

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