MenuItem Constructor (String, EventHandler, Shortcut)
Initializes a new instance of the class with a specified caption, event handler, and associated shortcut key for the menu item.
Assembly: System.Windows.Forms (in System.Windows.Forms.dll)
When you specify a caption for your menu item with the text parameter, you can also specify an access key by placing an '&' 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. This constructor also enables you to specify a shortcut key in addition to an access key to provide keyboard navigation. Shortcut keys allow you to specify a combination of keys that can be used to activate the menu item.
Setting the text parameter to "-" causes your menu item to be displayed as a separator (a horizontal line) rather than a standard menu item.
In addition, you can use this constructor to specify a delegate that will handle the Click event for the menu item being created. The EventHandler that you pass to this constructor must be configured to call an event handler that can handle the Click event. For more information on handling events, see Events and Delegates.
