How to: Join ToolStripPanels

You can join ToolStrip controls to a ToolStripPanel at run time, which provides the flexibility of multiple-document interface (MDI) applications.

The following code example demonstrates how to join ToolStrip controls to a ToolStripPanel.

// Create ToolStripPanel controls.
ToolStripPanel tspTop = new ToolStripPanel();
ToolStripPanel tspBottom = new ToolStripPanel();
ToolStripPanel tspLeft = new ToolStripPanel();
ToolStripPanel tspRight = new ToolStripPanel();

// Dock the ToolStripPanel controls to the edges of the form.
tspTop.Dock = DockStyle.Top;
tspBottom.Dock = DockStyle.Bottom;
tspLeft.Dock = DockStyle.Left;
tspRight.Dock = DockStyle.Right;

// Create ToolStrip controls to move among the  
// ToolStripPanel controls. 

// Create the "Top" ToolStrip control and add
// to the corresponding ToolStripPanel.
ToolStrip tsTop = new ToolStrip();
tsTop.Items.Add("Top");
tspTop.Join(tsTop);

// Create the "Bottom" ToolStrip control and add
// to the corresponding ToolStripPanel.
ToolStrip tsBottom = new ToolStrip();
tsBottom.Items.Add("Bottom");
tspBottom.Join(tsBottom);

// Create the "Right" ToolStrip control and add
// to the corresponding ToolStripPanel.
ToolStrip tsRight = new ToolStrip();
tsRight.Items.Add("Right");
tspRight.Join(tsRight);

// Create the "Left" ToolStrip control and add
// to the corresponding ToolStripPanel.
ToolStrip tsLeft = new ToolStrip();
tsLeft.Items.Add("Left");
tspLeft.Join(tsLeft);
