Description Stephen McConnel 2015-01-28 17:23:35 UTC
ToolStripLayoutStyle.Table is not really implemented, but default behavior is provided via the ToolStripLayoutStyle.StackedWithOverFlow implementation.  However, it defaults to being the same as ToolStripLayoutStyle.HorizontalStackWithOverflow when it should follow ToolStripLayoutStyle.VerticalStackWithOverflow.  
(In Windows/.Net the TableLayoutSettings for this default to 0 columns, 0 rows, grow by adding rows.)  In addition, Table style is defined to show buttons as flush left instead of being as wide as the parent ToolStrip with centered text.  Even though full implementation of the Table style may be too much to ever expect in Mono, getting the default behavior correct is needed for one of my cross-platform projects.

I will be submitting a pull request to bring the default behavior in line with how Windows/.Net behaves shortly.
