In WinForms Menu designer I need to associate type with menu item.
In properties window for Customer menu item I entered

=typeof(Custome r)

but designer creates code

this.customerTo olStripMenuItem .Tag = "=typeof(Custom er)";

How to force it to create

this.customerTo olStripMenuItem .Tag = typeof(Customer );

The "Tag" property stores an instance of an "Object." A System.Type does
not inherit System.Object, so a type cannot be stored in Tag. You'd have to
find some sort of work-around such as storing the type's name
(typeof(Custome r).ToString()), or maybe an integer representing a value in
an enumeration that contains all the Types that might be assigned to a
menu's tag. Of course, what you're doing with the Tag on menu_Click will
determine what is stored in the tag.

In VB6, I used a system, which I loved, whereby I assigned a "helpId" to each menu item; that way, you could rest the cursor on the item (without actually running it) and then press F1 to get context help with that particular command. In VB6 this was easy, since each menu item had a "helpId" property. That doesn't seem to be the case in VB.NET. Am I wrong about that, or (alternatively) is there some other way to accomplish this? --

I have a main window from which I want to open a separate side menu window. I then want to create a list of items on that side menu by clicking on the item names in the main window.

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
