Greetings all

I would like to add (by dragging - if it's possible) a StatusStripPanel to a StatusStrip.

I cannot find any StaustStripPanel in the toolbox. When I clicked "Choose items ..." from the toolbox menu, I cannot find anything StatusStripPanel in the list that is provided.

Any thoughts?

In advanc, thanks!

    What do you mean panel?
    Do you mean a label or status bar?

    Checkout the screen shoot I attached...

    I was looking for the StatustStripPanel.

    Over the w/end I came across the following, which seems to indicate that  (to my understanding thereof) that StaustStripPanel was "replaced" by the ToolStripStatusLabel.

    Perhaps you can comment on this:

    What are you trying to do?

    You could add a window (panel or any other) manually to the toolstrip.
