I followed the "Getting Started" section on DOCs.

Neither do they show in your sample code.

Attached is my test project

Hi Frank, 
 
Thanks for contacting Syncfusion support. 
 
We have analyzed the reported query – “Menu items does not displayed inside the bar”. We have checked the code snippet in the shared sample. Here you have missed the addition of bar items to the particular bar. Due to this, none of the bar items displayed in the bar. 
 
Please refer the following code sample. 
 
# Form1.Designer.VB 
 
        ' 
        'Bar1 
        ' 
        Me.Bar1.BarName = "maninMenu" 
        Me.Bar1.Caption = "maninMenu" 
        Me.Bar1.Manager = Me.MainFrameBarManager1 
        ' Add ParentBarItem to Bar 
        Me.Bar1.Items.AddRange(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem() {ParentBarItem1, BarItem1}) 
        ' 
        'ParentBarItem1 
        ' 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.BarName = "ParentBarItem1" 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.CategoryIndex = 0 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.ID = "mnuFile" 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.MetroColor = System.Drawing.Color.FromArgb(CType(CType(67, Byte), Integer), CType(CType(201, Byte), Integer), CType(CType(232, Byte), Integer)) 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.ShowToolTipInPopUp = False 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.SizeToFit = True 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.Text = "mnuFile" 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.WrapLength = 20 
        ' Add BarItem to ParentBarItem 
        Me.ParentBarItem1.Items.AddRange(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem() {BarItem1}) 
 
 
Please refer the following screenshot for your reference. 
 
 
 
 
Please let us know if you need any further assistance.

Thanks,

You are showing me code added in the auto-generated code.

I followed the docs exactly.
What step in the GUI designer did you do to get it to show.

My returned example you edited looks the same.
What is different?

Hi Frank,

Thanks for the update.
 
 
We have checked your reported query – “How to add the bar items to the Bar via designer”. You can achieve this requirement by Drag and drop the Bar items into the MainFrameBarManager control. After performing the drag and drop operation, the following code snippets are added automatically in designer file. 
 
Me.Bar1.Items.AddRange(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem() {ParentBarItem1, BarItem1}) 
 
Me.ParentBarItem1.Items.AddRange(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem() {BarItem1}) 
 
 
 Please refer the following screenshot for your reference. 
 


 
Please refer the attached videos from the following location: 
 
If the above solution does not meet your actual requirement, could you please share the detailed description about your requirement so that it could be helpful to provide the solution at the earliest.

Regards,
Thirupathi B.
