Hi Waleed,

Thank you for your interest in Syncfusion products.

Please try using ToolStripControlHost to achieve your requirement in ToolStripEx as shown below:

LinkLabel lab = new LinkLabel();
lab.Text = 'Test';
lab.Visible = false;
this.toolStripEx26.Items.Add(new ToolStripControlHost(lab));

Refer the sample simple our Dashboard shipped along with below location, implemented in Hosting .NET Controls TabItem.
{Installed Directory}\Windows\Tools.Windows\Samples\2.0\Office 2007 Controls\Ribbon ControlAdv\cs

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Lingaraj S.
