    Dim mainMenu1 As New MainMenu()
       
    Dim menuItem1 As New MenuItem()
    Dim menuItem2 As New MenuItem()
       
    menuItem1.Text = "File"

   Menu = mainMenu1;
}
public void CreateMyMainMenu()
{

   MenuItem menuItem1 = new MenuItem();
   MenuItem menuItem2 = new MenuItem();

   menuItem1.Text = "&File";

   // Create a MainMenu and assign MenuItem objects.
   MainMenu mainMenu1 = new MainMenu(new MenuItem[] {
         menuItem1,
         menuItem2});
   
   // Bind the MainMenu to Form1.
   Menu = mainMenu1;   
}

Public Sub CreateMyMainMenu()

    Dim menuItem1 As New MenuItem()
    Dim menuItem2 As New MenuItem()
       
    menuItem1.Text = "&File"
    menuItem2.Text = "&Edit"
       
    ' Create a MainMenu and assign MenuItem objects.
    Dim mainMenu1 As New MainMenu(New MenuItem() {menuItem1, menuItem2})
       
    ' Bind the MainMenu to Form1.
    Menu = mainMenu1
End Sub

Remarks

You can use this constructor to assign an array of MenuItem objects to the MainMenu at the time of its creation. After the MainMenu has been created you can add additional MenuItem objects to the MainMenu using the Add method of the MenuItems property.
