Wrappable Property

ToolBar.Wrappable Property

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the toolbar buttons wrap to the next line if the toolbar becomes too small to display all the buttons on the same line.

[Visual Basic]
Public Property Wrappable As Boolean
[C#]
public bool Wrappable {get; set;}
[C++]
public: __property bool get_Wrappable();
public: __property void set_Wrappable(bool);
[JScript]
public function get Wrappable() : Boolean;
public function set Wrappable(Boolean);

Property Value

true if the toolbar buttons wrap to another line if the toolbar becomes too small to display all the buttons on the same line; otherwise, false. The default value is true.

Remarks

Toolbar buttons can be divided into logical groups by using separators. A separator is a toolbar button with the Style property set to ToolBarButtonStyle.Separator. If the Wrappable property is set to true and the toolbar becomes too small to display all the buttons on the same line, the toolbar is broken into additional lines, with the breaks occurring at the separators. This ensures that button groups stay together. Toolbar buttons that are not in a group can be separated when the toolbar wraps. The toolbar can become too small to display all its buttons on the same line if its parent Form is resized.

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);
    }
