ToolStripItem.Anchor Property

Gets or sets the edges of the container to which a ToolStripItem is bound and determines how a ToolStripItem is resized with its parent.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

[BrowsableAttribute(false)]
public AnchorStyles Anchor { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Windows.Forms.AnchorStyles
One of the AnchorStyles values.

ExceptionCondition
InvalidEnumArgumentException

The value is not one of the AnchorStyles values.

Use the Anchor property to define how a ToolStripItem is automatically resized as its parent control is resized. Anchoring a control to its parent control ensures that the anchored edges remain in the same position relative to the edges of the parent control when the parent control is resized.

NoteNote

The Anchor and Dock properties are mutually exclusive. Only one can be set at a time, and the last one set takes precedence.
