Summary: In this video, we continue the discussion of windows forms. After adding the combo box on the tool strip, we hooked up the tool strip with the status strip. So when the user selects a color from the drop down, the color is reflected in the status strip. Then we added a menu to the main form. The menu contains an item that allows us to load a ‘Common Controls’ form. This form is currently empty. But in the next video we will add many controls to it. We also added shortcut keys to the menu items. With that we can select ‘Alt-E’ to trigger the ‘Explore’ menu. We also added support for the control key so the user can select ‘Ctrl+C’ to load the common controls form.
