Property Value

Type Description

The data that is the bar item’s content.


For BarEditItem objects, the object specified by the Content property is displayed before the item’s edit box. The object specified by the BarEditItem.Content2 property is displayed after the edit box.


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 BarItems’ contents.


This example shows how to create bar items and associate them with a custom Format category.
