MenuItem.Visible Property

 

Gets or sets a value indicating whether the menu item is visible.

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

public bool Visible { get; set; }

Property Value

Type: System.Boolean

true if the menu item will be made visible on the menu; otherwise, false. The default is true.

You can use this property to modify a menu structure without having to merge menus or disable menus. For example, if you want to hide a complete section of functionality from the menus for your application, you can hide them from the user by setting this property to false.

The following code example creates a menu item, sets the caption, assigns a shortcut key, makes the menu item visible, and shows the shortcut key display for the menu item. The example requires that a MenuItem has been created that is named menuItem1.

public void SetupMyMenuItem()
{
   // Set the caption for the menu item.
   menuItem1.Text = "&New";
   // Assign a shortcut key.
   menuItem1.Shortcut = Shortcut.CtrlN;
   // Make the menu item visible.
   menuItem1.Visible = true;
   // Display the shortcut key combination.
   menuItem1.ShowShortcut = true;
}
