Which all controls in vb.net associate themselves with the container in designer file?

For example ContextMenuStrip and ToolTip associate themselves with the container as in the code written below but MenuStrip doesn't .why?

The following line in the below code:
Me.ContextMenuStrip1 = New System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip(Me.components)
====================================================================
 'Required by the Windows Form Designer
    Private components As System.ComponentModel.IContainer

    'NOTE: The following procedure is required by the Windows Form Designer
    'It can be modified using the Windows Form Designer.  
    'Do not modify it using the code editor.
    <System.Diagnostics.DebuggerStepThrough()> _
    Private Sub InitializeComponent()
        Me.components = New System.ComponentModel.Container
        Me.ContextMenuStrip1 = New System.Windows.Forms.ContextMenuStrip(Me.components)
        Me.ToolStripMenuItem1 = New System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripMenuItem
        Me.A1ToolStripMenuItem = New System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripMenuItem

Open in new window




Thanks in advance

The simplest answer is that any control which is not added to Controls collection of a form uses the container to ensure that it gets dispose properly when form closes. There is no list of such controls as far as I know
