Namespace: DevExpress.XtraSpreadsheet

Assembly: DevExpress.XtraSpreadsheet.v21.2.dll

Declaration

public BarManager CreateBars()

Returns

Type Description
BarManager

A component that manages the created toolbars.

Remarks

Use the CreateBars method overloads to create a toolbar menu that allows end users to perform basic operations in the SpreadsheetControl. The current method creates all available bars, except for the Mail Merge toolbar. You can use the AddToolbarToMenuManager method to add this toolbar to the control, as shown below:

using DevExpress.XtraBars;
using DevExpress.XtraSpreadsheet;
// ...

public Form1()
{
    InitializeComponent();

    // Create the Spreadsheet's toolbar menu.
    BarManager bars = spreadsheetControl1.CreateBars();
    // Add the Mail Merge bars to the control.
    spreadsheetControl1.AddToolbarToMenuManager(SpreadsheetToolbarType.MailMerge);
    bars.Form = this;
}

To create a toolbar menu at design time, select the Create BarManager item in the SpreadsheetControl’s smart tag menu.

SpreadsheetControl_CreateBars

You can also use the CreateRibbon method to provide the modern ribbon interface for the SpreadsheetControl.
