Public Overridable Function IndexOfKey (key As String) As Integer



The name of the menu item to search for.


The zero-based index of the first menu item with the specified key.


If IndexOfKey is called successively, the last returned index will be checked for a key match first, and if there is no match, the search starts at the beginning of the collection.

The Name property corresponds to the key for a MenuItem in the Menu.MenuItemCollection.

The key comparison is not case-sensitive. If the key parameter is null or an empty string, or there are no matches, IndexOfKey returns -1.
