Property Value

Type: System.Boolean
true if the submenu of the MenuItem is open; otherwise, false. The default is false.

When IsSubmenuOpen is set to true, mouse capture is set to the MenuItem and its subtree.

The following example shows how to open a submenu of a MenuItem. In this example, the MenuItem called fileMenu contains a MenuItem called recentFiles that has a submenu. When fileMenu is opened, the SubmenuOpened event is raised and the FileMenu_Opened event handler opens the submenu of recentFiles.

<Menu>
  <MenuItem Name="fileMenu"
            Header="_File"
            SubmenuOpened="FileMenu_Opened">

    <MenuItem Name="recentFiles" 
              Header="Recent files">

      <MenuItem Header="file 1"
                IsCheckable="True"/>

      <MenuItem Header="file 2"
                IsCheckable="True"/>
    </MenuItem>
    <Separator/>
    <MenuItem Name="closeMenu" 
              Header="Close all Files"/>
  </MenuItem>
</Menu>
