I can get each item on the ToolStrip by the following codes.

        Dim tObj As ToolStripItem
        For Each tObj In ToolStrip.Items
               debug.pring tObj.name
        Next

However it didn't include the menu item inside the "ToolStripSplitButton" or "ToolStripDropDownButton"

So how to loop through each element includes all menuitem ?

       For Each obj As Object In ToolStrip1.Items
            If TypeOf (obj) Is ToolStripButton Then
                MessageBox.Show("ToolStripButton")
                CType(obj, ToolStripButton).Visible = False 'chnage/use whatever property you like

            ElseIf TypeOf (obj) Is ToolStripDropDownButton Then
                MessageBox.Show("ToolStripDropDownButton")
                CType(obj, ToolStripDropDownButton).Visible = False 'chnage/use whatever property you like
            End If
        Next

Desp,

Your code still cannot show the menuitem within the "ToolStripDropDownButton" !!!
