ToolStrip.LayoutCompleted Event

Occurs when the layout of the ToolStrip is complete.

Namespace: System.Windows.Forms
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in system.windows.forms.dll)

public event EventHandler LayoutCompleted
/** @event */
public void add_LayoutCompleted (EventHandler value)

/** @event */
public void remove_LayoutCompleted (EventHandler value)

In JScript, you can handle the events defined by a class, but you cannot define your own.
Not applicable.

When items do not fit within the ToolStrip, an overflow button automatically appears. The Overflow property setting determines whether an item appears in the overflow area always, as needed, or never.

Inspect the Placement property in the LayoutCompleted event to determine whether an item was placed on the main ToolStrip, the overflow ToolStrip, or if it is not currently showing at all. The typical reasons why an item is not displayed are that the item did not fit on the main ToolStrip and its Overflow property was set to Never.

For more information about handling events, see Consuming Events.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the LayoutCompleted event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing System.Windows.Forms.MessageBox.Show with System.Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of type ToolStrip named ToolStrip1. Then ensure that the event handler is associated with the LayoutCompleted event.

private void ToolStrip1_LayoutCompleted(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStrip.LayoutCompleted event.");
