Help - implement a dropdown button control

Hi All,

I am trying to implement a dropdown-button control in C#
which provides a list of actions.

Many Microsoft applicaitons use this kind of control. One
example is in the V.S IDE's file open dialog box (goto
File -> Open -> File). The Open button has a dropdown
icon that gives two choices ('Open' and 'Open With').

Anybody has any idea of how to implement this control?

Thanks,
JLOI

That's one of those neat features that Microsoft wants to keep for itself.
In order to get a similar functionality, you'll either have to purchase a
3rd party control or design one yourself. I know a guy that's been doing
that for years in MS Access by simply displaying the dropdown when the
button is clicked and then hiding it once they've selected an item from the
list.
