Thank you for choosing Telerik RadToolBar!

RadToolBar is an ItemsControl that contains a group of controls (items). The RadToolBar can displays its items in accompanying (pop-up) overflow area if the available area is too small.

The RadToolBar mimics the functionality and behavior of the VS toolbar with its Strip and Overflow areas. All the items in the toolbar will jump between the strip and the overflow depending on the toolbar’s size. In addition, the developer is able to stick items into one of these areas using a single property - OverflowMode.

The RadToolBar also supports a Style Selector that sets defauld styles to its items. There are pre-defined styles for many of the regular controls – Button, RadButton, ToggleButton, RadToggleButton, CheckBox, RadioButton, RadRadioButton, RadDropDownButton, TextBox, TextBlock, RadToolBarSeparator.

The RadToolBar control can be found in the following assembly:
Assembly: Telerik.Windows.Controls.Navigation.dll ; Namespace: Telerik.Windows.Controls

XAML

xmlns:telerik="http://schemas.telerik.com/2008/xaml/presentation"
<!-- ... -->
<telerik:RadToolBar>

<!-- ... -->
</telerik:RadToolBar>

C#

using Telerik.Windows.Controls;
void CreateToolbar()
{
    RadToolBar toolbar = new RadToolBar();
    this.toolbarHolder.Children.Add(toolbar);
}

VB.NET

Imports Telerik.Windows.Controls

Private Sub CreateToolbar()
    Dim toolbar As New RadToolBar()
    Me.toolbarHolder.Children.Add(toolbar)
End Sub 

The RadToolBar provides an overflow mechanism that places items that do not fit in the toolbar into an overflow area.
