Sample for MiniToolbar with RichTextBox formatting

I am needing a RichTextBox on my WinForms application that has BASIC text formatting capabilities such as bold, italics, underline, color and alignment. I ran into the MiniToolbar control that shows exactly what I am looking for but when I use it none of the text formatting items are there.

Where do I find the appropriate sample online? The link below has just plain information.

Thanks! I am playing with it and modifying the sample so that I can apply several attributes (bold+italics for example) and that is working fine. Haven´t quite figured out how to get the SplitButton to pop up the color picker dialog but I changed it to use a regular toolstripbutton and pop up the ColorUI control when it gets clicked.

In the sample there is something I do not understand and that is that the B|I|U|A buttons are not declared as child items of the MiniToolbar, but rather as great grandchildren. First there is a panel as single child item of the toolbar. Then there is another panel as child of that first panel (grandchile) and then on this 2nd panel the buttons are defined as great.grandchildren. Is there a particular reason for that?

Hi Emilio, 
Thank you for the update. 
We have prepared the sample for ToolStripSplitButton with pop up the ColorPickerUIControl and there is no reason for adding the button as grandchildren of MiniToolBar, we just customize our sample. Now, we have modified the sample and add the ToolStripButton as direct child of MiniToolBar. 
Please refer the following sample, 

Please let us know, if you have any query.
