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

public MenuItemCollection(
	Menu owner


Type: System.Windows.Forms.Menu
The Menu that owns this collection.

This class requires that you associate the collection with a class that derives from Menu, such as the MainMenu, ContextMenu, or MenuItem class. Since you must specify a menu that is associated with this collection, you cannot create multiple menu item collections and associate them with a menu as needed. In order to switch the menu items associated with a menu, you must clear the collection of items and add the menu items to display to the collection.
