Is the split button supposed to work like this?

Right now, we have a split button thats organized like this:

CmdA
----
\/
CmdA
CmdB

if CmdA is disabled, but CmdB is enabled, there is no way to execute CmdB because the entire button is disabled. Shouldn't the drop down portion of the button be enabled if there are active commands under it?

Check out the SplitButton documentation topic and in that, the "Disabling When Child Items Are All Disabled" section. That may help. If that doesn't get you going, I believe you can also set the SplitButton.PopupCommand to a command whose CanExecute will be used to determine if the popup should show or not.

If SplitButton.Command.CanExecute returns false, button and DropDown-arrow are disabled. Even setting a PopupCommand with CanExecute returning true does not help. Both CanExecute methods must return true to enable the drop down portion, but that is not what we (and SledgeHammer01) want : CmdA disabled, CmdB enabled AND drop down portion enabled. Please help...

Hi Thilo,

Sorry it is not possible in the current version but we've been working on updates for the 2012.2 version that will support this as long as you have a PopupCommand set.

Thank you. We are waiting for this fix because our application needs this functionality.

The latest build of this product (v2019.1 build 0683) was released 1 month ago, which was after the last post in this thread.
