Examples

The following example uses this version of the MergeMenu method to create a copy of a MenuItem and merge it with another. The merged MenuItem is then added to a ContextMenu control. This example assumes that there are two menu items called menuItem1 and menuItem2 that contain submenu items within them and a ContextMenu named contextMenu1 to display the menu items. menuItem1 and menuItem2 have different menu items contained within them. After the call to MergeMenu is made, a consolidated menu is created.

private:
   void MergeMyMenus()
   {
      // Set the merge type to merge the items from both top menu items.
      menuItem1->MergeType = MenuMerge::MergeItems;
      menuItem2->MergeType = MenuMerge::MergeItems;
      // Create a copy of my menu item.
      MenuItem^ tempMenuItem = gcnew MenuItem;
      // Create a copy of menuItem1 before doing the merge.
      tempMenuItem = menuItem1->CloneMenu();
      // Merge menuItem1's copy with a clone of menuItem2
      tempMenuItem->MergeMenu( menuItem2->CloneMenu() );
      
      // Add the merged menu to the ContextMenu control.
      contextMenu1->MenuItems->Add( tempMenuItem );
   }
private void MergeMyMenus()
{
   // Set the merge type to merge the items from both top menu items.
   menuItem1.MergeType = MenuMerge.MergeItems;
   menuItem2.MergeType = MenuMerge.MergeItems;
   // Create a copy of my menu item.
   MenuItem tempMenuItem = new MenuItem();
   // Create a copy of menuItem1 before doing the merge.
   tempMenuItem = menuItem1.CloneMenu();
   // Merge menuItem1's copy with a clone of menuItem2
   tempMenuItem.MergeMenu(menuItem2.CloneMenu());

   // Add the merged menu to the ContextMenu control.
   contextMenu1.MenuItems.Add(tempMenuItem);
}

Private Sub MergeMyMenus()
    ' Set the merge type to merge the items from both top menu items.
    menuItem1.MergeType = MenuMerge.MergeItems
    menuItem2.MergeType = MenuMerge.MergeItems
    ' Create a copy of my menu item.
    Dim tempMenuItem As New MenuItem()
    ' Create a copy of menuItem1 before doing the merge.
    tempMenuItem = menuItem1.CloneMenu()
    ' Merge menuItem1's copy with a clone of menuItem2
    tempMenuItem.MergeMenu(menuItem2.CloneMenu())
       
    ' Add the merged menu to the ContextMenu control.
    contextMenu1.MenuItems.Add(tempMenuItem)
End Sub
