Visibility change causes menu items to scroll (bug?)

To reproduce, run code, open file menu, press up and down arrows to move out
of menu.
Menu items are scrolled and blank items appears in end.

I need to change visibility of menu items at runtime.
How to fix this ?
Is this .NET 3.5 bug ?

Andrus.
using System.Windows. Forms;

static class Program
{
static void Main()
{
Application.Run (new Form1());
}
}

class Form1 : Form
{
public Form1()
{
var menuStrip1 = new MenuStrip();
var fileToolStripMe nuItem = new ToolStripMenuIt em();
menuStrip1.Item s.AddRange(new ToolStripItem[] {
fileToolStripMe nuItem });
for (int i = 0; i < 10; i++)
{
var item = new ToolStripMenuIt em("Item" + i.ToString());
fileToolStripMe nuItem.DropDown Items.Add(item) ;
if (i < 5)
item.Visible = false;
}

fileToolStripMe nuItem.Text = "File";
Controls.Add(me nuStrip1);
MainMenuStrip = menuStrip1;
}
}

Andrus,

The only immediate workaround I can see would be to not add the items if
you are not going to make them visible. I took your example and didn't add
the items if they were not visible, and didn't get that effect.

I would definitely register this bug on the Microsoft Connect site.

I have Winforms menu system designed using Windows forms Designer in MDI
parent form.
Some menu items may not be visible to user who logs in.

I have also command "login as different user" in this MDI parent form which
allows other user to log in without exiting main form.
For this command I need to make some other menu items visible.

How to make items visible/invisible in this case ?

Done.

I've been having a problem with PythonWin that seemed to start completely spontaneously and I don't even know where to START to find the answer. The only thing I can think of that marks the point between "PythonWin works fine" and "PythonWin hardly every works fine" was that I changed the size of my Virtual Paging file, noticing that it was too small (I currently have a P4 with 1G of RAM). I tried returning it to its original (smaller)...

I have noticed that the meaning of visibility: collapse has been discussed on different forums, but with no consensus on what it really means. Besides, implementations differ. The specification says: "The 'visibility' property takes the value 'collapse' for row, row group, column, and column group elements. This value causes the entire row or column to be removed from the display, and the space normally taken up by the row or column to...

I have a situation where I add over a hundred child MenuItems to a parent MenuItem. When I click the parent which shows a listing of all the child menu items, it is too big to fit on the page, so it has these up/down arrows so you can scroll through it. This is great, except this window it drew takes the entire height of my screen so it looks a little silly. How can I restrict the size of this menu, so it shows only like 20 menu items and...

We are using the ASP:Menu control (horizontal) for site navigation. The menu is contained by a table with css styles that allows us to give the illusion of a menu bar that runs the entire width of the page. This table also has additional right aligned cells on the same row for such things as logging out. When the child menu items are displayed by the mouse hovering over a menu item, the width of the web page is apparently increasing,...

I have an issue where I have a user control that is launched into a floating form. At some point later, I allow the user to "unfloat" the user control by reparenting it on a split container in another form. Problem is if I wake a tooltip when the window is floated, and then try the same thing when it is reparented, the app crashes with " Cannot access a disposed object.Object name: 'Form'. Presumably, this is a result of the tooltips...

There is a property "Item Wrap" but it only wraps the text within the item, and I've tried making...

Hi, I have a page with a scrollable DIV, and within that DIV, I have a few asp.net menu controls. The idea being, the user mouses over the small icons and is presented with a list of options. One of these lists has more data than the page allows for, so the menu control automatically creates the scroll up / scroll down commands at both ends of the menu. The problem is; since it is within a scrollable div, the menu scroller are hidden! ...
