Property Value

Type Description

A AppearanceObject object providing styles for painting side strips for items not recently used.


The side strip box is a vertical bar designed to display the icons of bar items within popup menus. In the image below, the side strip is filled differently for recently and non-recently used links.


Use the SideStripNonRecent property to customize styles (background colors and gradient settings) for side strip regions corresponding to links not recently used (see the BarItemLink.MostRecentlyUsed property). The MenuAppearance.SideStrip property contains styles for painting side strips for recently used links.

In the Flat, Style3D, Office2000 and WindowsXP paint schemes, the appearance settings specified by the SideStripNonRecent property are applied not only to side strips regions, but to entire regions occupied by bar item links. Use the BarAndDockingController.LookAndFeel and BarAndDockingController.PaintStyleName properties to specify a paint scheme for bars.


The appearance customization of side strips in skinning paint schemes is not supported.
