Property Value

Type Description

A BarItemPaintStyle enumerator value specifying the item style.


The PaintStyle property defines the look & feel of the current item. For instance, if a specific BarButtonItem has an associated icon and hotkey combination, but the PaintStyle property value is set to BarItemPaintStyle.CaptionInMenu, then the hotkey combination is disabled.


Different bar items behave differently when their PaintStyle property is set to Standard. For instance, by default ,BarButtonItems display only their images, while BarSubItems display only captions. To display a glyph instead of a caption for a BarSubItem, set this item's PaintStyle property to CaptionInMenu.
