Hi,is it possible to display the buttons list only when the arrow part is clicked. Currently, the buttons list will be displayed when click on the main button. I need some thing like the normal drop down list. Thanks in advance.

Hello Yip Yew Kwong,

Thank you for contacting us.

As far as I understand, you would like to achieve behavior similar to the one implemented in the Buttons >> SplitButton example in our Demos. If this is so, please have a look at the code there. If I did not get your question correctly, please elaborate a bit more on your requirements. I will do my best to provide you with proper support.

Greetings,

So, it is the split button that covers your need? I vaguely remember there are something called WinForms dropdown button. Nothing like that exist in telerik? I couldn't be wrong.

Hello Alexalexabc,

Thank you for writing.

Telerik UI for WinForms introduces in its suite two buttons with similar functionality:

RadSplitButton, which provides a menu-like interface, opened when the arrow part is clicked. Each of the items on the RadSplitButton can be set to perform an action when clicked. In addition, the items can contain other items, allowing you to create any hierarchy that fits your needs. RadSplitButton is visually indistinguishable from RadDropDownButton, but there is an important programmatic distinction. On RadSplitButton you set a DefaultItem property to indicate the item whose Click event should be triggered when the button is clicked. The functionality of RadSplitButton is "split" between the button itself and the dropdown menu.

RadDropDownButton, which provides a menu-like interface open from a button. Each of the items of RadDropDownButton can be set to perform an action when clicked. In addition, the items can contain other items, allowing you to create any hierarchy that fits your needs of subitems. 

Please refer to our Demo application - Buttons section.

I hope this information helps. Should you have further questions, I would be glad to help.
