Remarks

This property can be used to insert text to format dynamic menu items in a menu displayed on mobile devices. The Menu control supports templates for the display of static and dynamic menu items. For mobile devices, templates are ignored, so this property allows you to add characters or text to apply formatting to menu items without using a template.

Note

To achieve consistent formatting when you use this property, you should also set the StaticItemFormatString property if you want the formatting to be identical between the static and dynamic menu items.

If both template formatting and this property are applied, the template formatting is ignored for mobile devices.
