MenuStrip Constructor

Initializes a new instance of the MenuStrip class.

Namespace:  System.Windows.Forms
Assembly:  System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)

public MenuStrip()

Use this constructor to create a MenuStrip to which you can add ToolStripMenuItem objects.

The following code example demonstrates the MenuStrip constructor. This example is part of a larger example provided for the ToolStripPanel class.

// Create a MenuStrip control with a new window.
MenuStrip ms = new MenuStrip();
ToolStripMenuItem windowMenu = new ToolStripMenuItem("Window");
ToolStripMenuItem windowNewMenu = new ToolStripMenuItem("New", null, new EventHandler(windowNewMenu_Click));
windowMenu.DropDownItems.Add(windowNewMenu);
((ToolStripDropDownMenu)(windowMenu.DropDown)).ShowImageMargin = false;
((ToolStripDropDownMenu)(windowMenu.DropDown)).ShowCheckMargin = true;

// Assign the ToolStripMenuItem that displays  
// the list of child forms.
ms.MdiWindowListItem = windowMenu;

// Add the window ToolStripMenuItem to the MenuStrip.
ms.Items.Add(windowMenu);

// Dock the MenuStrip to the top of the form.
ms.Dock = DockStyle.Top;

// The Form.MainMenuStrip property determines the merge target. 
this.MainMenuStrip = ms;
