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


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
