Declaration

Property Value

Type Description
BarItemLinkCollection

A BarItemLinkCollection object that specifies the collection of links owned by the current container.

Remarks

Use the ItemLinks property to add bar items to the collection. When bar items are added to the collection via the BarItemLinkCollection.Add or BarItemLinkCollection.Insert method, a link to this bar item is created and added to the collection instead.

Bar items added must belong to the BarManager.Items collection.

Examples

This example shows how to create a BarLinkContainerItem, which is a container of item links. The BarLinkContainerItem contains Cut, Copy and Paste commands. The contents of the BarLinkContainerItem appear in the example in two places: in a bar and within a sub-menu.In the example, the bar is docked to the BarContainerControl which is created implicitly by setting the BarManager.CreateStandardLayout option to true.

The following image shows the result:
