Remarks

Use the Contains method to determine whether a MenuItem object is contained in the current MenuItemCollection object. The MenuItem and its properties is compared with the passed in value. This method is commonly used to test for the existence of a MenuItem object before performing a task, such as adding or removing a menu item from the collection.
