How can I access the QAT context menu items?


The QAT context menu items can be accessed through the DropDownEventArgs of the BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup event. RibbonControlAdv has two events BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup and AfterCustomizeDropDownPopup events that are triggered before and after the CustomizeDropDownPopup is activated


With the DropDownEventArgs the QAT context menu can be customized such as adding new items, accessing existing items and so on.


  ToolStripButton newItem = new ToolStripButton(); private void ribbonControlAdv1_BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup(object sender, DropDownEventArgs e)


newItem.Text = "New Item";


foreach (ToolStripItem ts in e.DropDown.Items)







Private newItem As ToolStripButton = New ToolStripButton()

Private Sub ribbonControlAdv1_BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DropDownEventArgs)

newItem.Text = "New Item"


For Each ts As ToolStripItem In e.DropDown.Items


Next ts

End Sub
