[Mono-list] Am I missing something with ContextMenuStrips andToolStrips?

  Thanks for the reply.  My issue is a run time issue, not a compile
issue though.  In fact, the executable I'm running in this case was
compiled with "another .NET compiler".  Is there something about the
runtime environment that would affect this?

  And as to your second point - is there a posted list (like there is
for the 1.1 Windows.Forms) about what's working and what isn't?  I can
only find the 1.1 information and not the 2.0 info.

You must compile with "gmcs" instead of "mcs" to get access to 2.0 APIs.

But the whole Windows.Forms 2.0 stack is under heavy development, we
make no promises that anything will work.
