ToolStripPanel Class

Creates a container within which other controls can share horizontal or vertical space.

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

[ToolboxBitmapAttribute(typeof(ToolStripPanel), L"ToolStripPanel_standalone.bmp")]
public ref class ToolStripPanel : public ContainerControl, 
	IComponent, IDisposable

Use a ToolStripPanel to hold one or more ToolStrip, MenuStrip, StatusStrip or user-defined controls.

You might find that one or more ToolStripPanel controls meet the needs of your application better than a ToolStripContainer if you do not need the four panels and the central ToolStripContentPanel.

You can use only one panel if you so choose, and ToolStripPanel works well in Multiple Document Interface (MDI) scenarios.

Each ToolStripPanel is expandable and collapsible.

The following code example demonstrates how to use ToolStripPanel controls with a multiple document interface (MDI).
