Hello again Dr. Snape!
  How do you get the command button to recognize methods on another form?   or methods that are in the main program? Also, if I want to instantiate a class, how can I get the command button to recognize the instance of the class without getting an error if the class is on another form?

Can I control the linklabel with a command button?  By that I mean by clicking on a command button it actually activates the linklabel as though it had been clicked?

Hi, when I used the .DropDownItems.Add for the context menu strip, I get an error:  Cannot find any method dropdownItem... are you missing a using or reference.  

Do I need to add any "using..." in order to make the DropDownItems.Add work?

Command Controls

  • Command Controls are immediate commands
  • The Command Controls are:
    • Button
    • ContextMenuStrip
    • MenuStrip
    • ToolStrip
  • The Button is used to cause an immediate action from the program
    • Using an ellipsis after the button text tells the user that a dialog box will open if they press the button
  • The ContextMenuStrip is a right-click menu that can be set differently for every control on a form
  • The MenuStrip is the standard menu along the top of a form
    • After placing it on the form, you can right-click on it and choose “Insert Standard Items” for quick creation of the standard menus
    • Using an & (ampersand) before a letter on a menu will make it the Alt- choice
    • You can have the same Alt- menu command for different levels of a menu
  • The ToolStrip gives you a condensed icon menu strip
