The dropdown caret that lets the user select what buttons are visible, is there a way to disable this or make it only available when all the items do not fit on the toolStripItem.

Hi Todd,

Currently we do not support that feature, but I have logged it in for implementation for one of the next releases.

For now, you can disable or hide the overflow button only. Simply use the following code:

radToolStripItem.OverflowManager.DropDownButton.Visibility = ElementVisibility.Hidden;  


If you would like to disable the overflow button you can use the following:

radToolStripItem.OverFlowManager.DropDownButton.Enabled = false

 
Sincerely yours,

Along similar lines, is it possible to hide the add/remove items menu item, but leave the overflow button functionality intact?

Thanks

Best regards

Hello Marek,

A possible solution is to handle the DropDownOpened event of RadToolStripItem's DropDownButton. You could access that button by using the OverFlowManager property of RadToolStripItem which gives you an instance of  ToolStripItemsOverFlow class, and then use its DropDownButton property and subscribe to the DropDownOpened event of that button.

In the EventHandler you could change the visibility state of the last item, which in our case is the add/remove items menu item, and is a child of the DropDownButton's items collection.

Write back if you need further assistance.

 
Best wishes,

Hi Ray
Many thanks for that, although I would really expect a property along the lines of AllowCustomization = true/false for this kind of thing.

Any chance it could be added to your TODO list?

Best regards

Hello keith robideau,

No, we have not added a property called AllowCustomization. However you have full access to the menu items in the toolstripitem dropdown button through the properties of RadToolStripItem class. You can customize the items very easily and if you need you can also hide the toolstripitem overflow button.

Could you please explain in more details the desired toolstrip functionality of your scenario? This will help us understand the specific case and we will do our best to give you the best solution.

I hope this helps.

Greetings,
