Description

When a CommandBarPopup is created on a toolbar (rather than on a menu), it doesn't show an arrow to the right to denote that it is a dropdown control. Previous versions of VS showed this arrow. 

Not showing it causes that the CommandBarPopup is confused with a CommandBarButton with text but without icon. Only when clicked, the user notices that the CommandBarPopup shows submenus while the CommandBarButton executes some action.

Hello CarlosQ,

Thank you for taking the time to send us feedback on Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1.

The issue you reported, that when a CommandBarPopup is created on a toolbar (rather than on a menu), it doesn't show an arrow to the right to denote that it is a dropdown control, has now been fixed. In the next release of VS 2010, the arrow should be shown to the right, as it was in VS 2008. I’m sorry for any inconvenience this causes in the meantime – I agree that it’s confusing for anyone using that control.

Thank you,
Suzanne Hansen, Program Manager, Visual Studio Platform Shell Team
