    Been testing the toolstrip a bit the last couple days, and I've run across a couple oddities / annoyances.

    First off, a bug - if you lock the control, it doesn't lock. Well, it sort of does - you get the locked icon, and you can't move it anymore, but you still get the 'Add New Row/Column' thing showing up, and THAT happily adds to the locked control's collection.

    Found that out trying to get rid of that very annoying option. Is there any way to turn OFF the 'Add new Row/Column' option? It makes the control look larger than it is in the designer, and invariably I click on it at least 6 times when I'm trying to move a control which is laying on top of it.
    I got it to disappear once by copy / pasting the control to another form, but after a save and reload, it came back :(

    Hello Pawz,

    Thank you for contacting us. In response to the issues you raised:

    1. Lock property
    This property locks the control bounds, i.e. the control cannot be sized nor repositioned. The content of the control, however, can be changed. See for example the behavior of Microsoft's ToolStrip when locked.

    2. "Add New Row/Column" feature
    You are correct. The behavior you're observing is inappropriate and annoying. We will be making changes to this functionality in the future and we will be fixing the way this specific feature is implemented to make it easier to use.

    We appreciate your feedback. Please, don't hesitate to contact us again, if we could be of any service.

    Greetings,

    Yeah, I figured it was standard to allow you to edit the subcontrols - it's just that adding those extra rows does extend the size of the control itself - the Microsoft Toolbar just dumps any extra buttons into an overflow. Again, a bit hard to compare, since the functionality is different.

    Hi Pawz,

    Thank you very much for the interesting ideas.

    We will consider your proposals and we will evaluate adding support for these features in one of the upcoming major releases. At present I'm not able to give you a specific time-frame when this will happen.


    Best wishes,
