Hi Belarus,

A DropDownBarItem is a BarItem that gets drawn with an arrow button to its right, which when clicked, will pop up a window (note: not a menu) represented by a PopupControlContainer. So it is not possible to have another BarItems in DropDownBarItem.

Please refer the Online documentation for more details:

Under Tools.Windows
Overview-->Controls-->Menus package---->Concepts and Features----->XP Menu Bars--->Bar Items-->Types of BarItems-->DropDownBarItem

Kindly let us know if you need any further assistance.

Best Regards,

Hi Belarus,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion Products.

As a workaround, you can use the ParentBarItem and set its ParentStyle as 'Dropdown'. This will look like a DropDownBarItem and we can add BarItems in it. Also keep the IsMainMenu unchecked in the BarStyle for the bar.

Kindly look into the sample and let us know if this helps.

Please refer the documentation link for more details:

Best Regards,
