This property is useful if you want to create a menu by binding to a collection. The item container is the UI element that displays the object in a collection. If you want to bind to a collection to create a menu that contains StatusBarItem objects and Separator objects, set the UsesItemContainerTemplate property to true and create an ItemContainerTemplate for each type of object in your collection. Each ItemContainerTemplate must contain either a StatusBarItem or a Separator.
