MainMenu Control won't show its face.

P: n/a
I have a windows form project.

I have added a mainmenu control which has several items with assoicated
subroutines.

I can not get the menu to display when I debug the application for anything.
YES, I am "activating" the mainmenu control prior to "building" the
solution... i.e. the main menu control is "active" and the menu appears in
the form's design view.

what gives....a bug?

Why do you activate the menu item prior to building the solution?
That's not required. Are you sure there are any visible menu items in
the menu bar?

[Sorry, I didn't mean to reply via email. Hit Ctrl+R as a force of habit.]

Is this by any chance an MDI application and do you maybe have a child
window with a context menu defined in it?

Frank,

Can you bring it down to a simple sample project and than show us your code
of that, where the bug is clear visible?
