Property Value

Type Description

An object that specifies the link’s object displayed after the edit box.


You can specify the content for a BarEditItemLink via the BarItem.Content and BarEditItem.Content2 properties. By default, this data will be used by all links. However, you can provide the contents for individual links via the BarItemLinkBase.UserContent and UserContent2 properties, overriding the bar edit item’s corresponding settings.

At runtime, an end-user can modify a link’s caption in customization mode. See Quick Customization to learn more.


BarItem objects can be displayed in multiple places simultaneously (for instance, in a Ribbon Page Group and Ribbon Quick Access Toolbar), while it is not possible to display the same UIElement in multiple places simultaneously. Therefore it is not possible to use UIElement objects as the content of a BarItems.
