  <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 1" />
  <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 2" />
  <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 3" />
  <MenuItem Header="Menu Item 4" />
</Menu>
Menu navigationMenu = new Menu();
MenuItem item1 = new MenuItem();
MenuItem item2 = new MenuItem();
MenuItem item3 = new MenuItem();
MenuItem item4 = new MenuItem();

navigationMenu.Items.Add(item1);
navigationMenu.Items.Add(item2);
navigationMenu.Items.Add(item3);
navigationMenu.Items.Add(item4);

KeyboardNavigation.SetTabNavigation(navigationMenu, 
    KeyboardNavigationMode.Cycle);
Dim navigationMenu As New Menu()
Dim item1 As New MenuItem()
Dim item2 As New MenuItem()
Dim item3 As New MenuItem()
Dim item4 As New MenuItem()

navigationMenu.Items.Add(item1)
navigationMenu.Items.Add(item2)
navigationMenu.Items.Add(item3)
navigationMenu.Items.Add(item4)
