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

public ToolStripItem Item { get; }
/** @property */
public ToolStripItem get_Item ()

public function get Item () : ToolStripItem

Not applicable.

Property Value

A ToolStripItem.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the ToolStrip.ItemAdded 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 ToolStrip.ItemAdded event.

private void ToolStrip1_ItemAdded(Object sender, ToolStripItemEventArgs e) {

System.Text.StringBuilder messageBoxCS = new System.Text.StringBuilder();
messageBoxCS.AppendFormat("{0} = {1}", "Item", e.Item );
messageBoxCS.AppendLine();
MessageBox.Show(messageBoxCS.ToString(), "ItemAdded Event" );
}
