MainMenu, MergeOrder, and MdiList missing in Visual Studio 2005

Hi,

I'm experimenting sample code created in Visual Studio 2002 (or 2003)
in my Visual Studio 2005.

However, I can't find the following in VS 2005:

- MainMenu control in Toolbox;
- MergeOrder property for a menu;
- MdiList property for a menu.

Anyone can advise me on the equivalent control/properties for these,
so that I can finish the exercise successfully?

Thanks!

I didn't use VS2003, but to add a menu to a VS2005 form, use the MenuStrip
control. There's also ToolStrip and StatusStrip.

I don't know what MergeOrder and MdiList are. If you enlighten me, maybe I
can point you in the right direction.

I think you're right. MenuStrip is equivalent to MainMenu.

MergeOrder is related to menu items. When a parent form and children
forms show at the same time, the menu items in children forms are
merged with the parent menu items and appear in the parent form.
MergeOrder determines the order in which the menu items appear when
they merger. I think MergeIndex is the equivalent property to
MergeOrder.

MdiList is a property of a menu. It determines if the menu will
contain a list of the names of the children forms. Now I still can't
find it's equivalent property in VS 2005.

Thanks!
