The Image, ImageAlign, ImageIndex, ImageKey, and ImageScaling properties pertain to various aspects of image handling. Use images in ToolStrip controls by setting these properties directly or by setting the run-time–only ImageList property.

this.toolStripButton1.Name = "toolStripButton1";
this.toolStripButton1.Text = "&New";
