In another Windows Forms toy app, I have added a menu strip to the main form. As you can see in the attached screen shot, the menu item ("Beenden") exhibits a small problem: It is not really left-aligned, although the TextAlign property is set to MiddleLeft. The equivalent setting, however, works fine for the menu itself ("Datei"), as you can see in the same screen shot as well. Are there any other property settings interfering that I might have failed to take into account, or what else might be wrong here?
This is the place for an icon. Try to find some property which disables icons display in a menu - just my guess.
Good point, one that I already thought of myself - at least I though I had. In fact, the DisplayStyle property was set to ImageAndText. (I already had changed that, however, in the "Ansicht" menu right next.) But changing that to Text didn't change the appearance either. The Image property, BTW, is (and has always been) set to (none).
Well, maybe there is old-style menu available in .NET - I remember that it was included in the first .NET versions. Anyway, for such kind of problems it is better to ask in C# forums - there is a lot of information available there.
I just did a forum search on all .NET-related sections, went back down to january '09 and didn't find a solution for the menu item issue. I did find, however, a thread (more precisely: a single post without any reply) from another guy who encountered the same issue. The thead was from somewhere in '09, thus apparently this issue isn't limited to MS' 2010 developer products.
And I stumbled into a solution for the X button issue discussed in the UseWaitCursor thread!
On second thought: Does it make sense at all to ask this one in the C# section? They have WPF there, so why should they know details about Windows Forms?

A lot of C++/CLI questions remain unanswered because there are no many C++/CLI programmers, and only few of them make UI in C++/CLI. In general .NET (C#, even VB) forums it is possible to get information which is not available in C++/CLI. Translation between there languages is very easy.
Right, WPF is now very popular, but many C# programmers still use Windows Forms.
It is a good idea to ask C++/CLI-specific questions here, and general .NET questions in some C# forum.
