Remarks

The MenuItemClick event is raised when a menu item is clicked in a Menu control. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine, such as synchronizing with another control on the page, whenever this event occurs.

A MenuEventArgs object is passed to the event handler, which allows you to access the properties of the menu item that raised the event.

For more information about how to handle events, see Handling and Raising Events.
