How to use in minimized mode

Aug 15, 2010 at 6:22 PM
I'm looking for a way to use it in minimized mode just like windows taskbar
menu or toolbar.

I tried content below.
If control is in minimized mode, it does not respond to outlookbutton click.
Also outlookbutton submenu items are not visible and thus cannot selected.

How to make control usable in minimized mode also?
In this case start of submenu item or submenu icon should be visible like in
usual toolbar buttons and should be selected.
Also tooltip containing full menu text should appear if mouse is over item.


d:DesignHeight="300" d:DesignWidth="400"

<Grid x:Name="LayoutRoot" Background="White">
<ColumnDefinition Width="Auto" />
<ColumnDefinition Width="*" />

<my:OutlookBar HorizontalAlignment="Left" Name="outlookBar1"
VerticalAlignment="Stretch" Width="200">
<my:OutlookBarButton Header="Dokument"
<StackPanel Margin="2">
<HyperlinkButton Content="Arve"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Ostuarve"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Maksekorraldus"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Laekumine panka"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Kassa sissetulek"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Kassa v�ljaminek"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Kulu dokumendid"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Muu v�ljastatud"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Muu sissetulnud"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Leping"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Realisatsiooniakt"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Akt"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Hinnamaatriks"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Hinnakujundus"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Hinnakiri"/>

<my:OutlookBarButton Header="Nimekiri"
<HyperlinkButton Content="Kontoplaan"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Klient"/>
<HyperlinkButton Content="Artikkel"/>

Hi Andrus,

First let me say thank you for trying out the OutlookBar control and giving such great feedback.

For an example of how to use the OutlookBar control in the minimized state please take a look at the Business application samples.

These show that the control does work as expected while in the minimized state. The issue you may be running into is that I have not yet implemented the pop up tray that displays the sub menu items when in the minimized state. This is on my list and will be imlemented as soon as I can.

I ran into a slight issue trying to implement the TooltipService and so had to take it out of Drop 4. I'm looking into how best to implement this and should have it in the next drop.
