Multiple toolstrip docking issue

Visual Studio 2005 Professional

I am creating a simple form with three toolstrips all docked at the top of the screen and anchored at the top/left corner. Say ts1, ts2, and ts3. The problem is I want them to be in the order 1 2 3, where 1 is the highest on the screen and 3 is the lowest. However, they auto fit into the order 321 and I can not for the life of me figure out how to set which order they appear docked in. Anyone have any information?

All in the same container.

You specify the order by changing the location (left and top) properties.
Jeff CertainCommented:
If you add a toolstrip container to the form, and put the toolstrips in it, you can specify the location to reorder the toolstrips.

The easiest way to do this is probably to select a toolstrip, click on the arrow in the upper right corner, and select embed in toolstrip container.

Ok great i have all of them in a toolstrip container but where do you specify which order they appear in the container?
wilsoadaAuthor Commented:
Should they each be in there own toolstrip container or all in the same one? I can not find any documentation on the toolstrip container in any of my .NET books.

ah ok this helped I think my biggest problem was also that i was just running the debug with F5 after i made changes and the changes weren't being reflected because I wasn't running build everytime. Thanks for the help here's the points.
