How to assign task for ToolStrip item when it is clicked?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: RibbonControlAdv |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014


We can handle the ItemClicked event of Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.ToolStripEx and handle the ClickedItem property in order to assign tasks.


private void toolStripEx1_ItemClicked(object sender, ToolStripItemClickedEventArgs e)


switch (e.ClickedItem.Text as string)


case "toolStripLabel1":

e.ClickedItem.ForeColor = Color.Red ;


case "toolStripSplitButton1":

e.ClickedItem.DisplayStyle = ToolStripItemDisplayStyle.ImageAndText;





Private Sub toolStripEx1_ItemClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As ToolStripItemClickedEventArgs)

Select CType(ConversionHelpers.AsWorkaround(e.ClickedItem.Text, GetType(String)), String)

Case "toolStripLabel1"

e.ClickedItem.ForeColor = Color.Red

' break

Case "toolStripSplitButton1"

e.ClickedItem.DisplayStyle = ToolStripItemDisplayStyle.ImageAndText

' break

End Select

End Sub
