the menu created have a triangle next to it, how can i remove


Dear all,

Why there is an down triangle next to each menu item, how can i remove it ?
Another thing i want to ask is what is the correct control i need to use to make a simple main menu ? Windows control has a menustrip which you can make menu. But syncfusion do have it. 

i create the menu by code because i cannot make it by using designer.


private void SetupMenu()
        {
            this.mainFrameBarManager1.Style = Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.VisualStyle.Office2007;

            // Add MainFrameBarManager as Manager
            bar1.BarName = "MainMenu";
            bar1.Caption = "Main Menu";            
            bar1.Manager = mainFrameBarManager1;

            // Add Bar and Categories
            mainFrameBarManager1.Bars.Add(bar1);
            mainFrameBarManager1.Categories.Add("File");

            // set caption
            parentBarItemFile.Text = "File";                    
            barItem1.Text = "New";
            barItem2.Text = "Open";
            barItem3.Text = "Save";

            parentBarItemEdit.Text = "Edit";
            parentBarItemWindow.Text = "Window";
            parentBarItemHelp.Text = "Help";
                        
            // Add it to MainFrameBarManager
            mainFrameBarManager1.Items.AddRange(
                new BarItem[] {
                    parentBarItemFile, barItem1, barItem2, barItem3,
                    parentBarItemEdit,
                    parentBarItemWindow,
                    parentBarItemHelp
                });

            // Add BarItem to ParentBarItem
            parentBarItemFile.Items.AddRange(new BarItem[] { barItem1, barItem2, barItem3 });

            // Add ParentBarItem to Bar
            bar1.Items.AddRange(
                new BarItem[] {
                    parentBarItemFile,
                    parentBarItemEdit,
                    parentBarItemWindow,
                    parentBarItemHelp
                });
}

Hi Alex,

Thanks for using Syncfusion product.

We have analyzed the reported query “How to remove the triangle arrow next to bar items in Menu control”. By default, the triangle arrow is rendered for the parent bar item types based on the BarStyle property. If you want to achieve the reported requirement, you can add the IsMainMenu type in bar styles options. Now the triangle arrow doesn’t shown in the menu item, that is similar to MenuStrip control.

Please refer the following code sample. 
  
#Form1.cs 
  
private void InitializeComponent() 
        { 
            this.mainFrameBarManager1.Bars.Add(this.bar1); 
            this.mainFrameBarManager1.Items.AddRange(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem[] { 
            this.parentBarItem1, 
            this.barItem1, 
            this.barItem2 
}); 
            this.bar1.BarName = "MainMenu"; 
            this.bar1.Caption = "MainMenu"; 
            this.bar1.Items.AddRange(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem[] { 
            this.parentBarItem1 
}); 
            this.bar1.BarStyle = ((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarStyle)(((Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarStyle.AllowQuickCustomizing | Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarStyle.IsMainMenu) 
            | Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarStyle.Visible))); 
            this.bar1.Manager = this.mainFrameBarManager1; 
  
            this.parentBarItem1.Items.AddRange(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem[] { 
            this.barItem1, 
            this.barItem2}); 
            this.parentBarItem1.Text = "File"; 
            this.barItem1.Text = "New"; 
            this.barItem2.Text = "Open"; 
        }
