Hi Blanca,


Thanks for your interest in Syncfusion products.


We suggest you to use the PaletteGroupBar’s ‘InplaceRenameItem’ method, ‘GroupBarItemRenamed’ event to rename a paletteGroupbar in symbol designer application.

We have modified the Symbol designer application to achieve your requirement and the same can be downloaded from the below link:

Note: Please right click the groupbar header and select ‘RenameItem’ option from the context menu in order to rename the paletteGroupBar.


Here is the code:



  symbolPaletteGroupBar.ShowContextMenu += new EventHandler(symbolPaletteGroupBar_ShowContextMenu);

            symbolPaletteGroupBar.GroupBarItemRenamed += new GroupItemRenamedEventHandler(symbolPaletteGroupBar_GroupBarItemRenamed);


void symbolPaletteGroupBar_ShowContextMenu(object sender, EventArgs e)


            Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.PopupMenu menu = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.PopupMenu();


            menu.ParentBarItem = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.ParentBarItem();

            menu.ParentBarItem.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Office2003;


            BarItem renameitem = new BarItem("Rename Item", new EventHandler(this.gvc_MenuRenameItem));



            menu.Show(this.symbolPaletteGroupBar, this.symbolPaletteGroupBar.PointToClient(Cursor.Position));



        private void gvc_MenuRenameItem(object sender, EventArgs e)





        void symbolPaletteGroupBar_GroupBarItemRenamed(object obj, GroupItemRenamedEventArgs arg)


            symbolPaletteGroupBar.CurrentSymbolPalette.Name = arg.NewLabel;



Here is the link to download the utilities:


Symbol designer:

Symbol Designer.zip


Please replace the above modified SymbolDesigner source in the below location.

“{System Drive}\Program Files\Syncfusion\Essential Studio\\Utilities\Diagram\Windows Forms\Symbol Designer\ “

Kindly take a backup of the SymbolDesigner utility before installing the new one.


Please let us know if you have any queries.
