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

public MainMenu()

This version of the constructor creates a MainMenu without any specified MenuItem objects. To add menu items to the control use the other version of this constructor that accepts an array of MenuItem objects as its parameter or use the Add method of the MenuItems property.

The following code example creates a MainMenu, assigns two MenuItem objects to the MainMenu and binds it to a form. This example requires that you have a Form created that is named Form1.

public void CreateMyMainMenu()
{
   // Create an empty MainMenu.
   MainMenu mainMenu1 = new MainMenu();

   MenuItem menuItem1 = new MenuItem();
   MenuItem menuItem2 = new MenuItem();

   menuItem1.Text = "File";
   menuItem2.Text = "Edit";
   // Add two MenuItem objects to the MainMenu.
   mainMenu1.MenuItems.Add(menuItem1);
   mainMenu1.MenuItems.Add(menuItem2);

   // Bind the MainMenu to Form1.
   Menu = mainMenu1;   
}
