context menu problems need help

G'day folks,

well i am attempting to get an understanding on how to create the
menuitems in a context menu on the fly. So far I have managed to
actually achieve the menu items being created for the context menu.
However, I have stumbled across one problem. Which is that how does
one go about enhancing the event handler for the context menu to
invoke individual actions for each of the menu items.

I have included a snippet of my code. In this sample example, I
created a button, which essentially adds 4 menu items based on
strArray to the context menu. Any recommendations on how to improve
the context menu event handler so that when I click on menu item "A"
in the context menu, the message box pops up.

Any recommendations will be appreciated.

thanks in advance.

string[] strArray = {"A", "B","C","D" }; //declared as global

private void contextMenu1_Po pup(object sender, System.EventArg s e)
MenuItem miClicked = (MenuItem)sende r;
string item = miClicked.Index .ToString();
case "A":
MessageBox.Show ("A");
case "B":
MessageBox.Show ("B");
case "C":
MessageBox.Show ("C");
case "D":
MessageBox.Show ("D");
//creating menuitems for context menu when the Push Button is pressed.
protected void button1_Click(o bject sender, EventArgs e)
for(int i=0;i<strArray. Length;i++)
contextMenu1.Me nuItems.Add(str Array[i]);
