ToolStripMenuItem.visible always false
Posted on 2006-11-23
I have a problem with the "visible" attribute of ToolStripMenuItem.
I have a form with a ToolStrip containing two ToolStripMenuItem buttons. I've been setting the visible attribute of these two buttons to false depending on the users permissions.
I'm now trying to re-size the ToolStrip according to how many of the buttons are visible. The problem occurs when I come to test the value of ToolStripMenuItem.visible.
It always seems to be false until the form has completeley finished drawing. So I can't count how many of the buttons are going to be visible.
How can I accurately test the visible attribute of a ToolStripMenuItem ?
