There isn't an index property on the toolstrip item click, however you could include the index in the tag property of each of the tool strip items and call the following to find what the tag (Containing the index)

I would wait to see what other suggestions people have though.


    Private Sub ToolStrip1_ItemClicked(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItemClickedEventArgs) Handles ToolStrip1.ItemClicked
    End Sub

It's a litte bit tricky to get it.
I tried it with ToolStripButton, but should work also for other ToolStripItem derevates.

private void MyCallBack(object sender, EventArgs e)
    ToolStripItem item = sender as ToolStripItem;
    int index = item.Owner.Items.IndexOf(item)
