I have a ToolStrip from which the user can select from a large number of options, such as one of our 40 or so employees. Because of space restrictions on the form, I would prefer to use a ToolStripDropDownButton rather than a ToolStripComboBox.

I can populate the button's drop-down just fine, but with 40 entries, the list is a tad long, and some of the other buttons I need to implement will have dozens of choices. I have been trying to find some kind of scrollable drop-down, similar to the one on the combo box but looking like the a drop-down menu, to no avail. I have searched on Code Project and around Google, but no luck there, either.

Before I give up, I'm hoping a fellow CPer might have some suggestions.

Not sure why you are using the toolstrip stuff when libraries like:
Windows Ribbon for WinForms[^] is freely available.

Have a look at Arik Poznanski articles[^] for several articles on how to use the library.

This would be easy if you were using WPF. As it is, I think your best bet is to just have a tool strip button, and have it show a dialog box you write that shows the items with a scroll bar.
