Menu/Tool Strips

P: n/a
I'm having difficulty with inheriting a form that has a menu on it. Is this
not possible with a Menu Strip? It comes up locked and will not change in
the descendant.

Also,
I'm trying to use a PropertyExtender with a Menu Strip as well. How do you
get the property to be on the menu items as opposed to the Menu Strip itself?

Roger,

Are the toolstrips declared as private or protected? In order for a
derived form to make changes, you have to declare the variables as protected
(if they are private, then descendants can't see the member).

Hope this helps.
