I don't know what exception was fixed with (from Release Notes):

#123949-In SplitButton control, DropDownItems property no longer throws an exception.

but unfortunately the code I use no longer works:

        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems.Add("Create NEW BLANK diet record")
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(0).Image = My.Resources.Resources.new_plus_green4
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(0).ImageScaling = ToolStripItemImageScaling.None
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(0).Margin = New System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0, 3, 0, 3)

        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems.Add("Create NEW (repeat) diet record from currently displayed record")
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(1).Image = My.Resources.Resources.Redo_icon
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(1).ImageScaling = ToolStripItemImageScaling.None
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(1).Margin = New System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0, 3, 0, 3)

        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems.Add("DELETE this diet record")
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(2).Image = My.Resources.Resources.delete_red
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(2).ImageScaling = ToolStripItemImageScaling.None
        'btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(2).Margin = New System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0, 3, 0, 3)

I was able to work around some of this using:

        Dim SplitButtonItems1 As SplitButtonItems = New SplitButtonItems()
        SplitButtonItems1.ItemImage = AllergyUnitDB.My.Resources.Resources.new_plus_green4
        SplitButtonItems1.ItemText = "Create NEW BLANK diet record"
        SplitButtonItems1.Name = "SplitButtonItems1"

        Dim SplitButtonItems2 As SplitButtonItems = New SplitButtonItems()
        SplitButtonItems2.ItemImage = My.Resources.Resources.Redo_icon
        SplitButtonItems2.ItemText = "Create NEW (repeat) diet record from currently displayed record"
        SplitButtonItems2.Name = "SplitButtonItems2"

        Dim SplitButtonItems3 As SplitButtonItems = New SplitButtonItems()
        SplitButtonItems3.ItemImage = My.Resources.Resources.delete_red
        SplitButtonItems3.ItemText = "DELETE this diet record"
        SplitButtonItems3.Name = "SplitButtonItems3"

However the following code also doesn't work but doesn't have an obvious workaround:

            If dt.Rows.Count = 0 Then
                btnSplitCreate.Text = "Create NEW BLANK diet record"
                btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(1).Enabled = False
                btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(2).Enabled = False
                btnSplitCreate.Text = "     Create NEW (repeat) diet from last"
                btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(1).Enabled = True
                btnSplitCreate.DropDownItems(2).Enabled = True
            End If

Is this the result of a bug or has all this functionality been removed permanently?
