Good evening.
    I want to know if there's a way to save the end-user customization of a CommandBar Control. If the user removes a button, or change the disposition of the strips... when he closes the application, next time he wants to find the layout as it was. I didn't find a method to do this.

Thank you.
Franco

Hello Franco,

I haven't tried this feature yet, but it looks very useful. The RadCommandBar has a CommandBarElement, and from this, just like the RadGridView you can save and load a layout to a file.

For exmaple:
Me.RadCommandBar1.CommandBarElement.LoadLayout("FileName")
Me.RadCommandBar1.CommandBarElement.SaveLayout("FileName")

LoadLayout Documentation

hope this helps, but please let me know if you need further information

Hello again,

i've just tried this and it works very well.
Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As System.Object, _
    ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MyBase.Load
    If My.Computer.FileSystem.FileExists("C:\Users\Richard\MyCommandBar.xml") Then
        Me.RadCommandBar1.CommandBarElement.LoadLayout("C:\Users\Richard\MyCommandBar.xml")
    End If
End Sub

Private Sub Form1_FormClosing(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.FormClosingEventArgs) Handles MyBase.FormClosing
    Me.RadCommandBar1.CommandBarElement.SaveLayout("C:\Users\Richard\MyCommandBar.xml")
End Sub

Hope this helps

I have the same issue and aftger triying to use the SaveLayout and LoadLayour methods, the commandbar is always in the default state, any change in the position of the commandbarrows is not memorized in the XML file.

Any suggestions?
