Possibility:
   Add one item, set AutoSize = false, and set the width so that the button would be aligned in the center.

VB.NET or C#?

yes, i was doing like that also. But i would like to here if there's a nicer solution... (cuz this would cause some freeze when we resize the window...)

Thanks for your reply though, Bob.

No, there isn't any "nicer" way.  Why would you want to do something non-standard like this?

No, I mean why would you want to center a button on the ToolStrip (that is the non-standard way)?  Buttons should be span from either the right or the left-hand side of the ToolStrip.

Ya i noe this is not standard, just a bit curiosity with a bit lazy. Actually i want to use that "nice-design" strip and its child items to put somewhere on my form but too lazy to draw by myself such a bar ^_^
i'll give you 125 points for your quickly replies, but actually i found the solution by myselft :p

i also did exactly the same way as you. Put a blank lable before the button, then resize it properly
