Remarks

Use the ItemSpacing property to control the amount of vertical spacing between a menu item to which the MenuItemStyle object is applied and its adjacent menu items at the same level. This space is inserted between the upper edge of the current menu item and the lower edge of the previous menu item, as well as between the lower edge of the current menu item and upper edge of the next menu item.

Note

The upper space is not rendered for the first menu item in the Menu control.
