Add Commands to the Caption Bar

At design time, the RibbonForm displays the Add Item button in the caption bar. This button allows you to select a bar item and add it to the caption bar.

You can also use the CaptionBarItemLinks collection to add bar items to the caption bar in code.

BarButtonItem barButtonItem2 = new DevExpress.XtraBars.BarButtonItem();
barButtonItem2.Caption = "Sign in";
barButtonItem2.Hint = "Not signed in";
barButtonItem2.ImageOptions.ImageUri.Uri = "business%20objects/bo_employee";


Customize Caption Bar Items

Use the created bar item’s smart tag menu to specify the icon, tooltip, and caption.
