Standard Toolbar & Menu

When your project demands the use of traditional navigation elements, DevExpress Menus, Toolbars and Status Bars for WinForms provide all the functionality you'll need to build intuitive, easy-to-navigate apps.

Main Menu & Toolbars

Navigate and perform common tasks by using the menu and toolbar commands.

Main Menu & Toolbars

The DevExpress WinForms Subscription ships with a feature-complete Menu/Toolbar system for those who do not or cannot use a Ribbon within their app. The main menu is stretched across the entire form with toolbars arranged below the main menu, although you are free to dock them to the left or right side of your form, or make them float.

Status Bars

Display the progress of a current task or additional information at the bottom of the screen.

Bar Items & Links

Buttons, submenus, labels, editors, check boxes, etc.

Bar Items & Links

DevExpress navigation controls support a wide variety of command types, including buttons, submenus, labels, editors, and so on. You can create new items using the Commands page of the bar manager's Customization Window.

MDI Merging

Automatic menu merging for MDI applications.

MDI Merging

If your app is designed around MDI (Multiple Document Interface), both parent and child forms can have their own commands. The parent provides files and windows management commands, while a child includes document-specific functionality. When maximizing the child, you have the option to merge the bars and menus of the parent and child MDI form depending on your particular needs and combine them within the parent form.

Save/Restore Layouts

Customize, save and restore layouts with ease.

Runtime Customization

Personalize toolbars the way you want.

Runtime Customization

Similar to Microsoft's popular toolbar-based applications such as Visual Studio, end-users can customize the layout of menus, bars and their commands using the Customization dialog.

Popup Menus, Alerts and More

Radial Menu

OneNote-inspired Radial Menu.

Radial Menu

If you've used Microsoft OneNote in the past, you'll be familiar with the features and capabilities of the our WinForms Radial Menu Control. This touch-first navigation element supports expanded and collapsed states. When collapsed, only its central button is visible. When a user clicks this button, the menu expands and displays all menu items associated with the control. The control can be displayed on-screen with both a left and right mouse click (as well as tap & hold for touch-first devices).

Alerts

Display notification on-screen alerts.

Alerts

Just like Microsoft Outlook, the Alert Window displays notification messages to end-users. By default, the alert appears in the bottom right corner of the screen and disappears after a brief delay (position and delay can be customized). The notification window can be pinned, can display a popup menu and can include a set of custom buttons.

Multi-Column Popup Menus

Easily split the contents of a single menu into two.

Multi-Column Popup Menus

Multi-Column Popup Menus
By default, context menu items are displayed in a single column. If you enable the MultiColumn option, the control can display menu items across multiple columns. Column count is customizable as is the visibility of individual menu item captions.

Context Menus

Create Office-inspired contextual menus.

Context Menus

The PopupMenu control can be used to provide easy access to frequently used commands for a control. When associated with an object on your form, the menu activates via a right-click on the object itself. To activate from code, use the ShowPopup method.

Hamburger Menu

Emulate the navigation metaphor found in today's most popular web apps.

Hamburger Menu

Hamburger Menu

We've integrated the Hamburger Menu layout within our Accordion Control: Set the ViewType property to HamburgerMenu and the control will support a collapsed state designed to mimic the behavior of Windows 10 apps.

Used together with our new Fluent Design Form, the Hamburger Menu automatically adapts its state when you resize the form. It also supports Acrylic Material and Reveal Highlight effects*.

* Available on systems with Windows 10 Spring Creators Update.

Testing Support

We don't simply support Coded UI; we support it to the maximum extent possible. Note: CodedUI support requires purchase of the DevExpress Universal Subscription. Learn more
