I am trying to integrate a ComboBox into a C# .net2.0 ToolStrip. (I am actually using a custom ComboBox , that inherits from type ComboBox). It appears that the ToolStrip has specialized components (button, comboBox, etc). The toolstripComboBox does not appear to have the same functionality as a standard ComboBox. I need the added functionality of the non-ToolStrip ComboBox. I am using it for a Font Selector which shows the graphical representations of the fonts
I would really like to add the ComboBox into the toolStrip. Has anyone been successful at this? I can place it at the end of the other combobox Items. It appears to be part of the toolstrip but its not really integrated into the toolStrip. I really would like to place it in the middle of the toolStrip and its not apparent how I could do this.
If I try to set the ComboBox parent to the ToolStrip I get a collection is read only error.
Any ideas how I might make this work? Or at least act like it works ;-).
