ToolStripItemEventArgs.Item Property


Gets a ToolStripItem for which to handle events.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

Public ReadOnly Property Item As ToolStripItem

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem

A ToolStripItem for which to handle events.

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 MessageBox.Show with 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 Sub ToolStrip1_ItemAdded(sender as Object, e as ToolStripItemEventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStrip1.ItemAdded

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

End Sub
