Examples

The following code example demonstrates a StatusStrip with various common properties set, including the Dock property.

statusStrip1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Top;
statusStrip1.GripStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripGripStyle.Visible;
statusStrip1.Items.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem[] {
toolStripStatusLabel1});
statusStrip1.LayoutStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripLayoutStyle.HorizontalStackWithOverflow;
statusStrip1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
statusStrip1.Name = "statusStrip1";
statusStrip1.ShowItemToolTips = true;
statusStrip1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(292, 22);
statusStrip1.SizingGrip = false;
statusStrip1.Stretch = false;
statusStrip1.TabIndex = 0;
statusStrip1.Text = "statusStrip1";
statusStrip1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.Top
statusStrip1.GripStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripGripStyle.Visible
statusStrip1.Items.AddRange(New System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem() {toolStripStatusLabel1})
statusStrip1.LayoutStyle = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripLayoutStyle.HorizontalStackWithOverflow
statusStrip1.Location = New System.Drawing.Point(0, 0)
statusStrip1.Name = "statusStrip1"
statusStrip1.ShowItemToolTips = True
statusStrip1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(292, 22)
statusStrip1.SizingGrip = False
statusStrip1.Stretch = False
statusStrip1.TabIndex = 0
statusStrip1.Text = "statusStrip1"

Remarks

Use the Dock property to define how a StatusStrip is automatically resized as its parent control is resized. For example, setting Dock to Left causes the StatusStrip to align itself with the left edges of its parent control and to resize as the parent control is resized. Controls are docked in their Z-order, which is the visual layering of controls on a form along the form's Z-axis (depth).

A control can be docked to one edge of its parent container or can be docked to all edges and fill the parent container.
