public virtual ToolStripTextDirection TextDirection { get; set; }
/** @property */

/** @property */

Property Value

One of the ToolStripTextDirection values. The default is Horizontal.

The specified value is not one of the ToolStripTextDirection values.

Use the TextDirection property to get or set the direction of the display text of a ToolStripItem, such as a ToolStripLabel or a ToolStripButton. You can set the TextDirection property on the ToolStrip itself, in which case the setting will apply to each ToolStripItem you add to the ToolStrip, or you can set the TextDirection property differently for each ToolStripItem.

The following code example demonstrates the syntax for setting common ToolStrip properties, including the TextDirection property.

// This is an example of some common ToolStrip property settings.

toolStrip1.AllowDrop = false;
toolStrip1.AllowItemReorder = true;
toolStrip1.AllowMerge = false;
toolStrip1.Anchor = ((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles)(((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Top | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Left)
            | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Right)));
toolStrip1.AutoSize = false;
toolStrip1.CanOverflow = false;
toolStrip1.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Cross;
toolStrip1.DefaultDropDownDirection = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripDropDownDirection.BelowRight;
toolStrip1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.None;
toolStrip1.GripMargin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(3);
toolStrip1.Items.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem[] {
toolStripButton1});
toolStrip1.ImageScalingSize = new System.Drawing.Size(20, 20);
toolStrip1.LayoutStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripLayoutStyle.HorizontalStackWithOverflow;
toolStrip1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
toolStrip1.Margin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(1);
toolStrip1.Name = "toolStrip1";
toolStrip1.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0, 0, 2, 0);
toolStrip1.RenderMode = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripRenderMode.System;
toolStrip1.ShowItemToolTips = false;
toolStrip1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(109, 273);
toolStrip1.Stretch = true;
toolStrip1.TabIndex = 0;
toolStrip1.TabStop = true;
toolStrip1.Text = "toolStrip1";
toolStrip1.TextDirection = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripTextDirection.Vertical90;
