			this.toolStripButton1.Image = Bitmap.FromFile("c:\\NewItem.bmp");
			this.toolStripButton1.DisplayStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItemDisplayStyle.ImageAndText;
			this.toolStripButton1.ImageAlign = System.Drawing.ContentAlignment.MiddleLeft;
			this.toolStripButton1.Name = "toolStripButton1";
			this.toolStripButton1.Text = "&New";
			this.toolStripButton1.TextAlign = System.Drawing.ContentAlignment.MiddleRight;
