Toolbar button issue

When I add a button to a tool bar I position it where I want it to show but at run time it always positions at the end of the tool bar.  How do I make it stay where I position it.

When you say "position", do you mean it's location in pixels from the left, or it's position relative to other toolbar items.
Also, is this the ToolStrip (new with .Net v.2), or the original ToolBar?
Any chance you can post a screenshot comparing design-time to run-time?

This is the tool strip control vs 2008.  When you click the add item button then select button it inserts the button at the last position.  I then drag the button to the position on the toolstrip. When I run the project the button has moved back to the last position.

Can't see any reason why that should happen. When you close the project in VS & reopen it, does the button move to the last position like it does at run-time? It sounds like changes to the Designer code aren't being retained. If this is the case, you could try creating a new ToolStrip & adding all the buttons again. Tedious I know, but it's sometimes easier than monkeying around with the Designer generated code.

Could you have any code that manipulates the Toolstrip when the form is constructed or loaded?

Just what I do to overcome the problem.  I've got a feeling you're right about deleting the toolstrip and starting over.  I think I'll skip it for now and just reposition the buttons on the form load.  I thought there might be an easy solution (like index numbers etc..) that I just wasn't seeing.

Thanks for the help.
