P: n/a

I am working in VB.NET. I want to create a tool which help in
selecting a button from a drop down buttons. This dropdown button must
look just like the buttons provided in MS WORD for the selection of
outside borders.

The reason for the need of this control is that. i have a severe
space constraint in the front end of my appplication. hope you have
understood my problem. Please suggest how do i go about building such a
control, or please gie me some source code which can help in the same.

Why don't you use a scrolling form? You aren't then restricted by the size
of your form

thanks Crouchie for the suggestion, but the my client is insisting me
to do this. This will look good and different on the front end.

The actual problem is that i am developing a software which deal with
maps. Hence the user has to get to see the map as large as possible.
The features for the map (zoom in, zoom out etc) are on the top on the
picture box( In this picture box i am displaying the map). Hence the
user will have to scroll frequently, if i make a scrollabe form. now
there are two rows of buttons on the top(there are almost 12 buttons on
top of picture box). The client wants to make it as 1 row.

So if u can just guide me how can i go about it, it will be very

I do not know how to even start .

Do i have to create a user control or what???

I am totally blank in this case.
