Remarks

Use the Add method to append the specified MenuItemBinding object to the end of the collection.

Note

You can add null values and duplicate MenuItemBinding objects to the collection.

As an alternative, you can insert a MenuItemBinding object in the collection at a specific index by using the Insert method.

Note

The order in which MenuItemBinding objects appear in the collection has no effect on how those objects are applied to the menu items in a Menu control.
