MenuItem Constructor

Initializes a MenuItem with a blank caption.

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

public MenuItem()

Once you have created a blank MenuItem using this constructor, you can use the properties and methods of the MenuItem class to specify the appearance and behavior of your MenuItem.

The following code example creates a MenuItem using this version of the constructor.

 public void CreateMyMenu()
    // Create an empty menu item object.
    MenuItem menuItem1 = new MenuItem();
    // Intialize the menu item using the parameterless version of the constructor.
    // Set the caption of the menu item.
    menuItem1.Text = "&File";
