The appearance of the RadCommandBar, containers and tool items can be tailored using one of the predefined themes, altering an existing theme in the Visual Style Builder, or by building your own custom themes with Visual Style Builder. Visual Style Builder lets you alter the look and feel of the tool strip and of each individual item in the tool strip, including dynamically changing properties using the new Visual Style Builder animation capabilities.

Overflow Handling

The overflow button automatically displays items that don't have the real estate to display by default. The end user can also customize the toolstrip by adding and removing buttons.
