Visual Studio .NET-Like Navigation Control

Environment: .NET Framework, C#

This control implements a well-styled navigation control for your MDI, SDI, or dialog-based application. I created this control because I love it. The goal was to create an exact copy of the Visual Studio Navigation Control.

I think that the target has been nearly reached. In the future, I'll implement a context menu for the menu items (as in Visual Studio). The source code is documented, so it's really easy to use.
