ToolStripControlHost.Control Property

Gets the Control that this ToolStripControlHost is hosting.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public Control Control { get; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.Control
The Control that this ToolStripControlHost is hosting.

The following code example demonstrates constructing a ToolStripControlHost control and sets a property on the wrapped control using the Control property. To run this example, paste the code into a form that contains a ToolStrip named toolStrip1 and call InitializeDateTimePickerHost from the form's constructor or the Load event handler.

		ToolStripControlHost dateTimePickerHost;

		private void InitializeDateTimePickerHost()

			// Create a new ToolStripControlHost, passing in a control.
			dateTimePickerHost = new ToolStripControlHost(new DateTimePicker());

			// Set the font on the ToolStripControlHost, this will affect the hosted control.
			dateTimePickerHost.Font = new Font("Arial", 7.0F, FontStyle.Italic);

			// Set the Width property, this will also affect the hosted control.
			dateTimePickerHost.Width = 100;
			dateTimePickerHost.DisplayStyle = ToolStripItemDisplayStyle.Text;

			// Setting the Text property requires a string that converts to a  
			// DateTime type since that is what the hosted control requires.
			dateTimePickerHost.Text = "12/23/2005";

			// Cast the Control property back to the original type to set a  
			// type-specific property.
			((DateTimePicker)dateTimePickerHost.Control).Format = DateTimePickerFormat.Short;

			// Add the control host to the ToolStrip.
