.NET: how to use ToolStripContainer

andy7789 used Ask the Experts™
Hi x-perts,

I am new to .NET; just started migrating from VBA. Can someone explain please, how to use ToolStripContainer?

What I did:

1) dropped control to my form
2) dropped toolstrips to each placeholders of the ToolStripContainer
3) when I run the form, it shows expanded sides with toolstrips and menus, but no hiding handlers, i.e. it doesn't expand

Also, is there a way to place some other elements to ToolStripContainer? Mybe it is another control to provide such a functionality? i have seen many applications with expandable handlers-containers containing ANY controls (charts, listboxes etc). How is it done?.

Please, advise
