    Question menuStrip collapse

    Hi guys,
    I have already created a two menustrip menus (up and down) inside a panel. I want to make the top menu with clicking to show items to inside the panel (and not as seperate drop down menu) and move the second menustrip downwards.
    Any idea of how to make this?

    Thanks in advanced.

    Re: menuStrip collapse

    You can try setting the Visible property of the 'sub items' to false and then setting them to true when they hover over the top menu item.

    However, moving away from the standard way of doing things is not recommended as it confuses users. Imagine if the View menu had Cut/Paste on it and the Help Menu had SaveAs on it... It may be sad to say, but... make your app look like Microsoft Office and everyone will be able to use it without thinkng....
    Ohhhhh.... Old McDonald was dyslexic, E O I O EEEEEEEEEE.......
