Hi, Is there anyway to hide the "Large icons" checkbox in the XP Menu customization dialog box? Right now if no large icons are specified and this checkbox is checked, the toolbars comeup empty (no-bitmaps). thanks, - Reddy

Hi Reddy, I have tested for this issue here in our latest release Essential Suite v2.0.2.1, but could not recreate the above mentioned issue. The ToolBars displayed the BarItems irrespective of whether the "Large Icons" CheckBox was checked or not. I have attached the test_sample here. Please take a look at it and let me know if I have understood your requirements correctly. If not, kindly modify this to show the error and send it back to us so that we can further investigate it. We appreciate your cooperation, and thanks for choosing Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

Guru, 1. Run the attached modified example. It has only small icons (Default paint style for baritems) and no large icons set. 2. Right click on toolbar and select customize. 3. In Customize dialog, on Options tab, check the "Large icons" checkbox and click ok. 4. Notice that the buttons appear to be gone. If you mouse over toolbar you will see small buttons with no text or image are there. Tooltips comeup. My point is, if there are no large icons set for the mainFrameBarManager, why even give the large icons option on the options tab of customize dialog? xpmenus_large_icons_3496.zip thanks, - Reddy

Hi Reddy, Thanks for the sample application. I have conveyed your suggestion to the development team and we will disable the "Large Icons" CheckBox (if no large ImageList is used) in our future releases. We appreciate your feedback, and thanks for choosing Syncfusion products. Regards, Guru Patwal Syncfusion, Inc.

How about hiding the "Large icons" check box when there''s no large icons, rather than just disabling it? Our users will then not be asking what it is and why it''s disabled!

Yes, hiding this checkbox would be better. - Reddy

Hi Paul/Reddy Thanks for the feedback. I hope you guys have taken a look at this Essential Tools KnowledgeBase Article: How do I modify the look and feel of the Customization Dialog? which shows how you can modify the Customization Dialog. Regards Arun

Yes, I have now found I can do this myself, but I still think it would be better to be hidden automatically, rather than disabled.
