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#?

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
