ToolStrip in Visual Basic .NET
Tags: VB.NET, VB 2008, VB 2010, VB 2012, VB 2013
This control displays a series of buttons, dropdowns, and other tools.
You can access these tools quickly without navigating through a series of menus, so they are most useful for performing frequently needed tasks.
Menus are more appropriate for commands that are needed not that often.
The following list shows the types of items that a ToolStrip may contain:
You can click the Smart Tags (Tasks) arrow and click the "Insert Standard Items" to add the standard controls to your ToolStrip control.
At runtime, you can access the controls inside the Items collection, or you can refer to the tools directly by their names.
