Examples

The following code example demonstrates the syntax for setting common ToolStrip properties, including the Anchor property.

// This is an example of some common ToolStrip property settings.
// 
toolStrip1.AllowDrop = false;
toolStrip1.AllowItemReorder = true;
toolStrip1.AllowMerge = false;
toolStrip1.Anchor = ((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles)(((System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Top | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Left)
            | System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Right)));
toolStrip1.AutoSize = false;
toolStrip1.CanOverflow = false;
toolStrip1.Cursor = System.Windows.Forms.Cursors.Cross;
toolStrip1.DefaultDropDownDirection = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripDropDownDirection.BelowRight;
toolStrip1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.None;
toolStrip1.GripMargin = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(3);
toolStrip1.Items.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem[] {
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";
toolStrip1.Padding = new System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0, 0, 2, 0);
toolStrip1.RenderMode = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripRenderMode.System;
toolStrip1.ShowItemToolTips = false;
toolStrip1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(109, 273);
toolStrip1.Stretch = true;
toolStrip1.TabIndex = 0;
toolStrip1.TabStop = true;
toolStrip1.Text = "toolStrip1";
toolStrip1.TextDirection = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripTextDirection.Vertical90;
' This is an example of some common ToolStrip property settings.
' 
toolStrip1.AllowDrop = False
toolStrip1.AllowItemReorder = True
toolStrip1.AllowMerge = False
toolStrip1.Anchor = CType(System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Top Or System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Left Or System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles.Right, System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles)
toolStrip1.AutoSize = False
toolStrip1.CanOverflow = False
toolStrip1.Cursor = Cursors.Cross
toolStrip1.Dock = System.Windows.Forms.DockStyle.None
toolStrip1.DefaultDropDownDirection = ToolStripDropDownDirection.BelowRight
toolStrip1.GripMargin = New System.Windows.Forms.Padding(3)
toolStrip1.ImageScalingSize = New System.Drawing.Size(20, 20)
toolStrip1.Items.AddRange(New System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem() {toolStripButton1})
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"
toolStrip1.Padding = New System.Windows.Forms.Padding(0, 0, 2, 0)
toolStrip1.RenderMode = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripRenderMode.System
toolStrip1.ShowItemToolTips = False
toolStrip1.Size = New System.Drawing.Size(109, 273)
toolStrip1.Stretch = True
toolStrip1.TabIndex = 0
toolStrip1.TabStop = True
toolStrip1.Text = "toolStrip1"
toolStrip1.TextDirection = System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripTextDirection.Vertical90

Remarks

Use the Anchor property to define how a ToolStrip is automatically resized as its parent control is resized. Anchoring a control to its parent control ensures that the anchored edges remain in the same position relative to the edges of the parent control when the parent control is resized.

Note

The Anchor and Dock properties are mutually exclusive. Only one can be set at a time, and the last one set takes precedence.
