Microsoft Visual Studio .NET provides 47 powerful intrinsic Windows Forms controls right out of the box. If the Toolbox isn’t visible, click View | Toolbox on the main menu to display the palette of tools included in the Toolbox. You’ll spend a lot of time in this window when building Windows Forms applications. Click the Windows Forms tab to display the controls. Then right click on one of the controls and select Sort Items Alphabetically. Figure 2-1 shows the entire contents of the Windows Forms tab of the Toolbox; you’ll need to scroll to see every tool.
