How to remove minimize the ribbon item from QAT dropdown in WinForms RibbonControlAdv?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: RibbonControlAdv

Remove the minimize ribbon item

In the RibbonControlAdv, the Ribbon Minimize button is visible, by default. The Minimize button can be customized by using the property, ShowMinimizeButton. However, the Minimize the Ribbon option shows in the QAT DropDown. The DropDown Items can be customized by handling the BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup event. By using this event, QAT DropDown items can be added or removed based on the user requirement.


//Hides the Ribbon Minimize button.
this.ribbonControlAdv1.ShowMinimizeButton = false;
//This event occurs before the DropDown popup.
this.ribbonControlAdv1.BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup += new DropDownEventHandler(ribbonControlAdv1_BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup);
void ribbonControlAdv1_BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup(object sender, DropDownEventArgs e)
    //Removes the specified item.
    e.DropDown.Items.RemoveAt(e.DropDown.Items.Count - 1);


'Hides the Ribbon Minimize button.
Me.ribbonControlAdv1.ShowMinimizeButton = False
'This event occurs before the DropDown popup.
AddHandler ribbonControlAdv1.BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup, AddressOf ribbonControlAdv1_BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup
Private Sub ribbonControlAdv1_BeforeCustomizeDropDownPopup(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As DropDownEventArgs)
    'Removes the specified item.
    e.DropDown.Items.RemoveAt(e.DropDown.Items.Count - 1)
End Sub
