The Repository Editor page lets you manage the BarManager’s internal repository of inplace editors for bar items. This page provides access to the BarManager’s EditorContainer.RepositoryItems collection. For detailed information on using repositories, refer to the Add Bar Items To Toolbars tutorual. This page is shown in the image below.



The repository item collection can be managed using the buttons located at the top of the page. These buttons are described below.

  • Add - creates a new repository item of a particular type and adds it to the repository. The new repository item’s type is displayed within the button.

    Down Arrow button - invokes the dropdown list displaying the available inplace editors. Once the desired item is selected, it is added to the repository and its type is displayed on the Add button:


  • Remove - removes the selected repository item from the repository. The selected repository item cannot be removed if it is assigned to a bar item or bar items.

Once the repository item has been added to the repository, its name and type are displayed within the repository items list (see the top image). The property grid enables you to modify the selected item’s settings.
