Default Custom ToolStrip


For custom toolstrip items, I want to create a custom one. Can custom toolstrips be user controls? Will the toolstrip accept user controls as a custom item?

Basically, I'm looking to create a sidebar. I want to create a sidebar that has additional options for the site, like visual studio's solution explorer, server explorer, toolbox, etc... I was going to create a user control that has the functionality that I want, and put it in the sidebar. I guess I could create a panel control that inherits from ToolStripItem and add the user control to that... know of one done already?

Have you been able to make any headway Brian? I'm myself working on
an app that requires stuff like that. I was able to do what i wanted
by extending the ToolStripControlHost class. with this I can add
any control to the strips thats available in .NET otherwise. Let me
know if this is the best way or if there is a better way.
