MenuItem Constructor (String)

 

Initializes a new instance of the MenuItem class with a specified caption for the menu item.

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

new : 
        text:string -> MenuItem

Parameters

text
Type: System.String

The caption for the menu item.

When you specify a caption for your menu item with the text parameter, you can also specify an access key by placing an '&' character before the character to be used as the access key. For example, to specify the "F" in "File" as an access key, you would specify the caption for the menu item as "&File". You can use this feature to provide keyboard navigation for your menus.

Setting the text parameter to "-" causes your menu item to be displayed as a separator (a horizontal line) rather than a standard menu item.

The following code example creates a MenuItem that specifies the caption of the menu item at the time it is constructed.
