C# – How to right align controls in a StatusStrip


I am trying to right align a control in a StatusStrip. How can I do that?

I don't see a property to set on ToolStripItem controls that specifies their physical alignment on the parent StatusStrip.

How do I get Messages drop down to be right aligned? http://i.friendfeed.com/ed90b205f64099687db30553daa79d075f280b90

Found it via MSDN forums almost immediately after posting :)

You can use a ToolStripLabel to pseudo right align controls by setting the Text property to string.Empty and setting the Spring property to true. This will cause it to fill all of the available space and push all the controls to the right of the ToolStripLabel over.
