Toolstrip on BaseForm - not accessible on inherited form

allanmark asked

Greetings all

I added a toolstrip control to a baseForm and then proceeded with the manual steps necessary to inherit a form in C# Express. Everythign works fine - except for the toolstrip container. I have tried setting the modifer to Protected and to Publci -- the properties remain Readonly in the inherited form. From what I understand, controls will have to be added programmatically?

How do I:

1.  Add, programmatically, a control to the toolstrip
2.  Code an appropriate event for teh control (eg ToolstripButton_Click)
3. Refer to teh valkues contained in the toolstrip controls?

In advance, thanks!!!
