    I have a rad tool bar with numerous buttons and two dropdowns... I need to dynamically add buttons to the buttons collection of the dropdowns..

    I know to get reference to it you need to get the toolbaritems collection and loop through them and find your dropdown..

    Here lies my problem.. The Radtoolbardropdown seems to be missing an ID property, or a commandname property.
    How do I know which drop down I am adding the buttons to?

    I don't want to use the text as this may change, so how do I do it?

    Thank Bex

    Hello Bexm,

    The other way to access the dropdown button is to use its index in the RadToolBarItems collection.
    Consider the following example:

    protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e) 
        RadToolBarDropDown tbd = RadToolBar1.GetAllItems()[2] as RadToolBarDropDown; 
        tbd.Buttons.Add(new RadToolBarButton("added to first dropdonw")); 
        tbd = RadToolBar1.GetAllItems()[7] as RadToolBarDropDown; 
        tbd.Buttons.Add(new RadToolBarButton("added to second dropdonw"));
