How to initialize Menus through code?

Platform: WinForms |
Control: XPToolbar |
Published Date: April 30, 2011 |
Last Revised Date: July 10, 2014

 

Each and every component of menu has to be individually initialized through code and finally add the MainFrameBarManager to the form. Please refer the below code snippet which illustrates this:

C#

this.mainFrameBarManager1 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.MainFrameBarManager(this.components, this);

this.mainFrameBarManager1.Categories.Add("MainMenu");

this.parentBarItem1 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.ParentBarItem();

this.barItem1 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem();

this.barItem2 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem();

this.barItem3 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem();

this.mainFrameBarManager1.Items.AddRange(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem[] { this.parentBarItem1, this.barItem1, this.barItem2, this.barItem3 });

this.bar1 = new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.Bar(this.mainFrameBarManager1, "MainMenu");

this.mainFrameBarManager1.Bars.Add(this.bar1);

this.bar1.Manager = this.mainFrameBarManager1;

this.parentBarItem1.Items.AddRange(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem[] { this.barItem1, this.barItem2, this.barItem3 });

this.bar1.Items.AddRange(new Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem[] { this.parentBarItem1 });

this.parentBarItem1.Text = "File";

this.barItem1.Text = "New";

this.barItem2.Text = "Open";

this.barItem3.Text = "Save";

((System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize)(this.mainFrameBarManager1)).EndInit();

VB

Me.mainFrameBarManager1 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.MainFrameBarManager(Me.components, Me)

Me.mainFrameBarManager1.Categories.Add("MainMenu")

Me.parentBarItem1 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.ParentBarItem()

Me.barItem1 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem()

Me.barItem2 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem()

Me.barItem3 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem()

Me.mainFrameBarManager1.Items.AddRange(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem() {Me.parentBarItem1, Me.barItem1, Me.barItem2, Me.barItem3})

Me.bar1 = New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.Bar(Me.mainFrameBarManager1, "MainMenu")

Me.mainFrameBarManager1.Bars.Add(Me.bar1)

Me.bar1.Manager = Me.mainFrameBarManager1

Me.parentBarItem1.Items.AddRange(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem() (Me.barItem1, Me.barItem2, Me.barItem3})

Me.bar1.Items.AddRange(New Syncfusion.Windows.Forms.Tools.XPMenus.BarItem() {Me.parentBarItem1})

Me.parentBarItem1.Text = "File"

Me.barItem1.Text = "New"

Me.barItem2.Text = "Open"

Me.barItem3.Text = "Save"

CType(Me.mainFrameBarManager1, System.ComponentModel.ISupportInitialize).EndInit()
