WinForms Main Menu & Toolbars

Easy-to-use and highly customizable.

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

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.

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, save and restore layouts with ease.

WinForms Hamburger Menu

Emulate the web navigation metaphor.

We've integrated the Hamburger Menu layout within our WinForms 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 WinForms Fluent Design Form, the Hamburger Menu automatically adapts its state when you resize the form. The Hamburger menu also supports Acrylic Material and Reveal Highlight effects.

WinForms Popup Menus

Create Office-inspired contextual menus.

Our WinForms Popup Menu 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. DevExpress Menu is highly customizable and can display menu items across multiple columns.

DevExpress (WinForms) not only helped us to set up a real fancy and well-accepted user interface but also helped to create an extremely stable and reliable surface which almost guarantees proper data entering and validation. So Many Thanks for this incredible library which is worth every cent. Torsten Reuter

WinForms Radial Menu

OneNote-inspired Radial Menu.

If you've used Microsoft OneNote in the past, you'll be familiar with the features and capabilities of 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).
