public object UserContent { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

An object that represents the link’s Content.


You can specify the content for a bar item via the BarItem.Content property. By default, this data will be used by all links. However, you can provide the content for individual links via the UserContent property, overriding the bar item’s corresponding setting.

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 BarItems’ contents.
