Putting Controls on MDI Forms

Question:
I have a project I am working on including an MDI form with a toolbar. I am wanting to put a combo box on the toolbar, but VB4 will not let me put combo boxes on an MDI form. What can I do?

Answer:
One popular solution is to put the combo box into a picture box (which can be put on an MDI form). You should be able to position the combo box once you've done that. Any control you want to put on an MDI form has to have the Align property available. The error message you get will let you know that the control you tried to place doesn't have this property.
