The problem you describe can be solved by adding your menus, toolbars, and then your statusbar. Then add a Panel control and set its Dock property to Fill. Next, add all of your other controls to the Panel control and arrange them to your satisfaction. Now when you hide a toolbar, the Panel control will automatically use the extra space that was taken by your toolbar and when you show your toolbar again, the Panel control will use less room.
