Remarks

The MenuItemDataBound event is raised when a menu item is bound to data in a Menu control. This allows you to provide an event handler that performs a custom routine, such as adding custom content or modifying a menu item before it is rendered, 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.
