ToolStripItem.DisplayStyleChanged Event


Occurs when the DisplayStyle has changed.

Namespace:   System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public event EventHandler DisplayStyleChanged


Changing the Enabled property of a ToolStrip does not raise the DisplayStyleChanged event. Raise this event with specific property settings.

For more information about handling events, see Handling and Raising Events.

The following code example demonstrates the use of this member. In the example, an event handler reports on the occurrence of the DisplayStyleChanged event. This report helps you to learn when the event occurs and can assist you in debugging. To report on multiple events or on events that occur frequently, consider replacing MessageBox.Show with Console.WriteLine or appending the message to a multiline TextBox.

To run the example code, paste it into a project that contains an instance of a type that inherits from ToolStripItem, such as a ToolStripButton or ToolStripMenuItem. Then name the instance ToolStripItem1 and ensure that the event handler is associated with the DisplayStyleChanged event.

private void ToolStripItem1_DisplayStyleChanged(Object sender, EventArgs e) {

   MessageBox.Show("You are in the ToolStripItem.DisplayStyleChanged event.");
