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.

Exception Condition
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.

System_CAPS_noteNote

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