Public ReadOnly Property Item As ToolStripItem

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem

The ToolStripItem on which to paint the arrow.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ToolStripRenderer.RenderArrow event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from ToolStripRenderer, such as a ToolStripSystemRenderer or ToolStripProfessionalRenderer. Then name the instance ToolStripRenderer1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the ToolStripRenderer.RenderArrow event.

Private Sub ToolStripRenderer1_RenderArrow(sender as Object, e as ToolStripArrowRenderEventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStripRenderer1.RenderArrow

    Dim messageBoxVB as New System.Text.StringBuilder()
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ArrowRectangle", e.ArrowRectangle)
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "ArrowColor", e.ArrowColor)
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Direction", e.Direction)
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Graphics", e.Graphics)
    messageBoxVB.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Item", e.Item)
    MessageBox.Show(messageBoxVB.ToString(),"RenderArrow Event")

End Sub
