Hi, I have a few feature enhancement suggestions for the Toolbars (docked and standalone)

1) Add an alignment property to the toolbar buttonlinks that determines how a button is aligned on the toolbar, ie: left side or right side, like the MS ToolStripButtons have.

2) Add a TextTrimming property to BarPopupButtonLink to allow the developer to choose how link text that is too long for the amount of room available to the link on the toolbar is treated. This choices could be None, Word Ellipsis, End Ellipsis, Path Ellipsis. This could work in concert with another new property, Overflow, that would allow the developer to override how buttons go to the overflow menu, like the MS ToolStrip control has.

3) Implement the overflow menu on the standalone toolbars.


Any idea on when you might be able to do these?

Thanks.

Hi Rick,

Thanks for the suggestions... I've added them to the TODO list. I'm not sure of a timeframe, we'll see how things fit into our overall priorities.

But if you ever need some feature implemented for one of our products immediately, we can be contracted at an hourly rate to implement it. We have done that several times in the past for various customers. In those situations, we bump up the priority to try and get it done as fast as possible. Contact us via email if that is something you are interested in.

Hi,

Any word on the status of these requested features? Suggestions 1 and 2 are the most important. Suggestion 3 is a nice to have, if that helps.

Thanks... Rick

Hi Rick,

Not sure offhand since we do have some higher priority items to get to first. But again, if this is something you do need immediately, you can read this page for more information:
