A very nice feature is the wizard to connect the different controls such as ButtonBar, RulerBar and StatusBar automatically. To use this wizard, you need to drag and drop all controls to the form and click Arrange Controls Automatically.

The wizard looks for existing controls and arranges them in the current parent container like a form or a panel control. Additionally, the wizard inserts the required code to connect these controls.

The screencast video shows this wizard in action.
