You can use this property with the Parent property to navigate in code through an entire menu structure.

The following code example determines whether there are any submenus associated with a MenuItem named menuItem1. If any submenus exist, it disables them by setting the Enabled property to false. The example requires that there is a MenuItem created named menuItem1.

public void DisableMyChildMenus ()
{
   // Determine if menuItem2 is a parent menu.
   if(menuItem2.IsParent == true)
   {
      // Loop through all the submenus.
      for(int i = 0; i < menuItem2.MenuItems.Count; i++)
      {
         // Disable all of the submenus of menuItem2.
         menuItem2.MenuItems[i].Enabled = false;
      }
   }
}


public void DisableMyChildMenus()
{
    // Determine if menuItem2 is a parent menu.
    if (menuItem2.get_IsParent() == true) {

        // Loop through all the submenus.
        for (int i = 0; i < menuItem2.get_MenuItems().get_Count(); i++) {

            // Disable all of the submenus of menuItem2.
            menuItem2.get_MenuItems().get_Item(i).set_Enabled(false);
        }
    }
} //DisableMyChildMenus
