Examples

public:
   void InitMyFileMenu()
   {
      // Set the MergeType to Add so that the menu item is added to the merged menu.
      menuItem1->MergeType = MenuMerge::Add;
      // Set the MergeOrder to 1 so that this menu item is placed lower in the merged menu order.
      menuItem1->MergeOrder = 1;
   }
public void InitMyFileMenu()
{
   // Set the MergeType to Add so that the menu item is added to the merged menu.
   menuItem1.MergeType = MenuMerge.Add;
   // Set the MergeOrder to 1 so that this menu item is placed lower in the merged menu order.
   menuItem1.MergeOrder = 1;
}

Public Sub InitMyFileMenu()
    ' Set the MergeType to Add so that the menu item is added to the merged menu.
    menuItem1.MergeType = MenuMerge.Add
    ' Set the MergeOrder to 1 so that this menu item is placed lower in the merged menu order.
    menuItem1.MergeOrder = 1
End Sub

Remarks

The merge type of a menu item indicates how the menu item behaves when it has the same merge order as another menu item being merged. You can use merged menus to create a consolidated menu based on two or more existing menus.
