Why Choose NavBar for WinForms?

Mimic Microsoft Outlook

Provide a familiar navigation UI. The WinForms NavBar is a complete recreation of the classic Microsoft Outlook navigation bar.

Create Sidebar Navigation

Use the WinForms NavBar to create your application's sidebar with collapsible groups. The control can also be collapsed to a smaller layout.

Code-Free Development

ComponentOne NavBar features extensive design-time support for the .NET Framework. This no-code design experience provides code-free customization of the entire NavBar control.

WinForms NavBar Key Features

Collapsible Navigation Bar

Enable the WinForms navigation bar to collapse on any edge of its container, including left, right, top, and bottom. When collapsed, the NavBar control displays just the icons for each group so it remains functional for users while saving screen space.

Run-time Customization

End-users can customize the WinForms NavBar buttons at run time by clicking on the lower drop-down arrow button. This allows users to rearrange buttons and choose to show or hide certain groups.

Stackable Buttons

Users can slide the splitter bar to stack buttons into the strip bar located at the bottom of the navigation bar. When buttons overflow, they will appear in the drop-down menu for selection.

Built-in Visual Styles

Choose from 11 built-in visual styles, including different Office-inspired color schemes. Achieve these Microsoft Outlook-inspired looks by setting one property. Or, customize the theme further using ThemeController.
