ToolStrip height

How can I increase height of ToolStrip control? Setting Size in the form designer or Height at runtime doesn't change anything - toolstrip height remains 25.

You need to set the AutoSize property to false first, then resize should work as expected.

if you want the height to be eg 30 pixel and width to be 500 then:

            this.toolStrip1.MaximumSize = new System.Drawing.Size(500, 30);
            this.toolStrip1.MinimumSize = new System.Drawing.Size(500, 30);
you can set these sizes in the property window - MaximumSize , MinimumSize
my auto size is still set to true anyway

Setting MinimumSize helps to increase toolbar height, but buttons size remains the same. Is it possible to increase button size? I tried to use icon with 48*48 size as button image, but it still shows small 32*32 version of this icon.

I used the image property on the toolstripbutton to set the image, then image scaling to none, you can also play with the padding and margin of the toostripbutton

This is what I have:
I created Windows Forms application in C# 8.0 and added ToolStrip control to the form. I set ToolStrip MinimumSize to 0,50. Then I added one button to ToolStrip and set it's Image property to bitmap with size 48*48.
Result: ToolStrip has size that I want, but button is still small (1/2 of required size). What should i do now?
