Object Type Path to AllowQuickCustomization


Each bar, by default, has a quick customization menu that allows the end-user to change the visibility of a bar’s buttons on the fly. This menu can be invoked via the Dropdown button displayed at the bar’s right edge.

The image below shows a quick customization menu invoked for an Image bar.


Use the BarManager.AllowQuickCustomization property to specify whether quick customization menus are available for all bars belonging to this BarManager. If the menus are enabled, you can still disable the menu for an individual bar via the AllowQuickCustomization property. If the BarManager.AllowQuickCustomization is set to false, the menus are disabled regardless of the AllowQuickCustomization property’s value.

This menu will also contain the Customize… button, provided that the BarManager.AllowCustomization property is set to true. See this topic for more information.
