Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms

The following code example demonstrates how to set the Text, AutoSize, Overflow, and TextDirection properties, and handle the Click event. To run this example, paste the following code into a form that contains a ToolStrip named movingToolStrip and call InitializeMovingToolStrip in the form's constructor or Load event handler.

ToolStripButton^ changeDirectionButton;

void InitializeMovingToolStrip()
{
    changeDirectionButton = gcnew ToolStripButton;
    movingToolStrip->AutoSize = true;
    movingToolStrip->RenderMode = ToolStripRenderMode::System;
    changeDirectionButton->TextDirection = 
        ToolStripTextDirection::Vertical270;
    changeDirectionButton->Overflow = 
        ToolStripItemOverflow::Never;
    changeDirectionButton->Text = "Change Alignment";
    movingToolStrip->Items->Add(changeDirectionButton);
    changeDirectionButton->Click += gcnew EventHandler(this, 
        &Form1::changeDirectionButtonClick);
}

void changeDirectionButtonClick(Object^ sender, EventArgs^ e)
{
    ToolStripItem^ item = (ToolStripItem^) sender;
    if ((item->TextDirection == ToolStripTextDirection::Vertical270) 
        || (item->TextDirection == ToolStripTextDirection::Vertical90))
    {
        item->TextDirection = ToolStripTextDirection::Horizontal;
        movingToolStrip->Raft = RaftingSides::Top;
    }
    else
    {
        item->TextDirection = 
            ToolStripTextDirection::Vertical270;
        movingToolStrip->Raft = RaftingSides::Left;
    }
}
