Best way to show binding navigator and form on tab page?

Using vs2010, what are the options for getting a form based on a dataset
and it's binding navigator to reside on the page of a tab control? By
default, dropping the 'form' (the dataset's fields) from the data source
window onto the tab page puts the fields in the page, but the 'toolbar'
(bindingnavigator) ends up docked on the form itself. Can the tab's page
act as a container for the toolbar, or do I need to add some other
container to the tab page. The toolbar does not need to be moved at
runtime.

It looks like the bindingnavigator toolbar can be hosted by either a tab
page or a panel, and probably more. I used the vs2010 Document Outline
toolbox to move the toolbar to those locations...it's odd that the
bindingnavigator toolbar does not have a parent property exposed in the
properties window? I think the doc outline feature is new to vs2010 so I
wonder how were these kinds of changes made before?
