I have a commandbar button with a split/dropdown. When the button is clicked, I would like the dropdown menu to appear as if the dropdown arrow was clicked.

Private Sub CommandBarsThread_Execute(ByVal Control As XtremeCommandBars.ICommandBarControl)
  If Control.Id = 18 Then
        .....
  End If
End Sub

I tried that, and that gives me an 'out of stack space' error, because I'm causing an infinite loop.

I should probably show how I am creating it as well.. an embedded frame.

Dim ControlForm As CommandBarControlCustom
Set ThreadBar2 = CommandBarsThread.Add("ThreadBar2", xtpBarRight)
Set C = ThreadBar2.Controls.Add(xtpControlSplitButtonPopup, 18, "Move To")
C.CommandBar.Controls.DeleteAll
Set ControlForm = C.CommandBar.Controls.Add(xtpControlCustom, 666, "Move")
ControlForm.Handle = fSendTo.hWnd

The split popup control has a commandbar object.  The commandbar object has a showpopup method.  I used it right in the execute event to force the menu popup to appear:

Private Sub CommandBars_Execute(ByVal Control As XtremeCommandBars.ICommandBarControl)
Dim controlpop As CommandBarPopup
If Control.ID = TBID_SplitButton Then
      Set controlpop = Control
      controlpop.CommandBar.ShowPopup
end if
 
ActiveX 13.2.1
