Quick Customization

The quick customization feature allows your end-users to configure the bar layout by dragging bar items to a required position.

When quick customization is enabled, an end-user can perform the following actions.

  • Change a bar item's position
    Hold down ALT and drag a bar item to a required position.
  • Copy a bar item
    Hold down the ALT + CTRL key combination and drag a bar item to a required position.
  • Remove an item from the toolbar
    Hold down ALT and drag the bar item outside the toolbar.

Bar items can be moved or copied to a menu that is currently closed. Closed menus are opened when you hover over them while dragging a bar item.

The following image demonstrates the quick customization feature.

The following table lists properties that control the availability of the quick customization feature for different bar elements.

Property Description
Bar.AllowQuickCustomization Specifies whether the quick customization feature is enabled for the current Bar.
BarManager.AllowQuickCustomization Specifies whether the quick customization feature is enabled for the current BarManager.
ToolBarControl.AllowQuickCustomization Specifies whether the quick customization feature is enabled for the current ToolBarControl.

Enabling quick customization also enables the quick customization menu, which allows your end-users to toggle the availability of individual bar items.
