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

'Declaration
Public ReadOnly Property ClickedItem As ToolStripItem

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem
The ToolStripItem that was clicked.

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

Private Sub ToolStrip1_ItemClicked(sender as Object, e as ToolStripItemClickedEventArgs) _ 
     Handles ToolStrip1.ItemClicked

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

End Sub
