Placing A Combo Box Onto A Toolbar

To put a combo box on a toolbar, create a place holder and positionthe combo box above the place holder in the z-order. You can’t place thecombo box inside the place holder. Instead, follow these steps:

  • Create a button with the PlaceHolder style.
  • Show the form.
  • In the Form_Load event set the Top and Left properties of the combobox to the same value as the PlaceHolder button.
  • Set the z-order of the combo box to zero to bring it to the front.
  • In the Form_Resize event, make sure the Top and Left properties ofthe combo box are the same as the PlaceHolder button.
