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?

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.

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.

All in the same container.

You specify the order by changing the location (left and top) properties.
