Remarks

Use the IndexOf method to determine the index of the specified MenuItemBinding object in the collection.

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.

If the menu item binding is not in the collection, the method returns -1.

Note

If the specified menu item binding appears multiple times in the collection, the index of the first occurrence is returned.
