I have encountered a major issue with adding controls suite 18.3.0  (but also 17.1.0) as the pushbutton is not providing a click event. The click event as well as the 'clickevent' event are not triggering.
Normal forms buttons are fine. The axhost says that the click event for example is not available.
When I add a pushbutton,  it looks fine but as soon as I click it opens the designer code for a 'dropdown' event! And that is not even triggering when clicking the button.

I can not do anything more than I have done.

1. Add a reference to the xtremesuitecontrols 18.3 (registered)
2. Add the controls to the toolbar
3. Select the pushbutton
4. Click on it to get the code for the click event opened.

Can anyone tell me what I do wrong here? I am programming for over 30 years and experienced in .NET but i have not seen this behavior before.

Hello Ron,

PushButton  don't exist for CommandBar/Ribbon, maybe you mean xtpControlButton ?

Such button's clicking is handled in CommandBars_Execute method, see our C# RibbonSample
private void CommandBars_Execute(object eventSender, AxXtremeCommandBars._DCommandBarsEvents_ExecuteEvent eventArgs)
        switch (eventArgs.control.Id)

I am talking about the XtremeSuiteControls, not the commandbars. The axPushbutton is causing the issue. So please review your answer.

Thank you

Hello Ron,

I have confused buttons because seen "toolbar" but it is toolbar of VisualStudio.

So I investigated this question and can confirm that problem exists.  In C# VS solution you can choose method for Click event in appropriate tab Events of pane Properties. But default event for PushButton in designer is DropDown.

I can't find how to fix it now. I've found solution for controls which written on C# , but our ActiveX library written on C++. I have added this task in our task base.
