Like other controls Name property is not available for use.

Couple of recomendations

1. While constructing the menu, create a hashtable.

2. Derive a class from menuitem and add your own properties to store menu
name.

MenuItem is just a component, not a control -- that's why it doesn't
have a "real" Name property. The Name property of real controls is
certainly available for use from outside the designer.

name.


Yes, that's perhaps the best approach.

Hi, I am able to obtain a MenuItem object's Name property @ design-time, but am not able to get the same @ run- time...why? And since MenuItem doesn't inherit from Control class, it's not even supposed to be available @ design-time right?

In VB.net menus, there is a name property, but it isnt available in runtime..strange!!! does someone has a idea how i can do something similar? reason i want it is...in my app the UI text comes from a language table in database. For form and control text i retrieve it using the formname+control name. But doing the same thing for menu is not possible. One idea is to store the name of the menu item e.g. mnuFile in the text itself

Hi, I'm writing a program using Visual C# 2005 Professional Edition, and I was trying to assign multiple MainMenu objects (one by one, of course) to the same Form (let's suppose 2 MainMenu objects). It is possible (and it's my case) that these 2 MainMenu objects use some different MenuItem objects and some identical MenuItem objects. For example, let's assume that: mainMenu1 contains miFile, miEdit, miHelp mainMenu2 contains miFile,...
