VisualWebGui Migration - ToolStrip issues


Hi all,

guys you are doing a wonderful work. I am now trying to migrate VisualWebGui app to Wisej. As I was using ToolStrips in the old app, now I am getting Type or namespace could not be found. This is happening for:

  • ToolStrip
  • ToolStripLabel
  • ToolStripTextBox
  • ToolStripButton
  • ToolStripDropDownButton
  • ToolStripSeparator
  • ToolStripComboBox
  • ContextMenuStrip

What can be done to overcome this, as it looks like you do not have a ToolStrip class implemented.

This is what I have in the current VWG App (see attachment) – Toolstrip with Label, TextField, Buttons, and DropDown

Is it possible to create a virtual class based on horizontal stack that can act as a ToolStrip ?

I have this on every window in the old app so manually adjusting this is nightmare


Also can I propose a special VWGMigration subsection in support forums.

Thank You!

Hi Jonatha,

Instead of implementing the toolstrip as a duplicate of the toolbar, we are adding toolbar child types that more or less match toolstrip items and a generic IToolbarItem. ToolbarControlHost will allow you to add any Control to a toolbar and preserve the Auto Overflow Dropdown.

We don´t have a specific release date yet, but will keep you updated.

Best regards

Any news on when ToolStrip will be available?

Hi Dino,

We don’t have the ToolStrip system at the moment. It’s on the roadmap, after the RibbonBar. However, as you noted, it’s relatively easy to replace the toolstrip implementation in VWG using a panel with stacked items. I can send you a sample app next week after Tuesday. We have a pending overdue release that is kind of stopping everything until it’s out.
