toolStripButton1});
toolStrip1.ImageScalingSize = new System.Drawing.Size(20, 20);
toolStrip1.LayoutStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripLayoutStyle.HorizontalStackWithOverflow;
toolStrip1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
toolStrip1.Margin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(1);
toolStrip1.Name = "toolStrip1";
