How to add ToolStripItem to quick access toolbar programmatically in the WinForms RibbonControlAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: RibbonControlAdv

Adding items to QAT

To add the ToolStripItem to QAT programmatically, use the Header property and the AddQuickItem function of the RibbonControlAdv. To load QAT items, you have to typecast the ToolStripItem as the QuickButtonReflectable type.


//Adds the item in the Quick Access ToolBar.
this.ribbonControlAdv1.Header.AddQuickItem(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.QuickButtonReflectable(this.openToolStripButton));
this.ribbonControlAdv1.Header.AddQuickItem(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.QuickButtonReflectable(this.saveToolStripButton));


'Adds the item in the Quick Access ToolBar.
Me.ribbonControlAdv1.Header.AddQuickItem(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.QuickButtonReflectable(Me.openToolStripButton))
Me.ribbonControlAdv1.Header.AddQuickItem(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.QuickButtonReflectable(Me.saveToolStripButton))
