Hi Phil -

Thank you for reporting this issue. Customer feedback is a critical part of a successful, impactful software product. Unfortunately another part is the reality of schedules and the need to prioritize investments according to the objectives of the product. We have evaluated the issue that you have reported and at this point in the product's lifecycle, it does not meet the criteria to be addressed. This evaluation is carefully done and considers many aspects including the cost of the fix, implications of the change, and the number of reported instances of the issue. Many customers have found it useful to discuss issues like this in the forums ( where Microsoft and other members of the community can recommend ways of achieving the behavior you are interested in.

Thank you,

The Windows Forms Product Team
