Asked On August 7, 2007 10:02 PM UTC

Is there a way to lose the shaded
region on the left side of
BarItems so that the menu item
is narrower?

We have a couple of situations
where icons would be inappropriate,
and we'd like to reclaim the space.

EssTooLs ver and/or 5.1.x
plus .Net2

Thanks for using Syncfusion products.

There is no way to lose the Shaded Region on the left side. But we can hide the shaded region by changing it's backcolor. Please use the MenuColor class and set the back color of menutext to the MenuLeftStripColor as shown below:

Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.MenuColors.MenuLeftStripColor = Color.White;

Please refer the sample which will explain the above:


Please let me know if this helps you.

Thanks for your reply

Actually, the primary issue is reclaiming
the space. I'm disappointed to learn
that is not possible.
