The MenuItemTemplateContainer class is used by the Menu control as a container for the contents of the menu items that are rendered using a custom template.


This class is used by control developers primarily when extending the Menu class to create a container for a templated menu item.

You can define a custom template for the dynamic and static menu items of a Menu control by using the DynamicItemTemplate and StaticItemTemplate properties, respectively.

For a list of initial property values for an instance of the MenuItemTemplateContainer class, see the MenuItemTemplateContainer constructor.
