MenuStrip DowpDown Issues

MenuStrip DowpDown Issues

MenuStrip DowpDown Issues

Good Morning!

I'm having issue coding a MenuStrip to have drop down items and need some advise please!

Within my Form, I have an item MenuStrip1. Within MenuStrip1, I have a collection, Sub1 to Sub10 which I populate programatically depending on a User's Login, this works perfectly!

However, what I need to achieve, is to populate a drop down list from Sub1 to Sub10, again programatically, based on the same User's Login!

Can anyone offer me the solution I need?

Many thanks


RE: MenuStrip DowpDown Issues

Loop through the items in the collection and add an item to the DropDownList for each item in the collection, something like this:

For Each sMenuItem As String In colMenuItems
DropDownList.Items.Add(New ListItem(sMenuItem))

Note that this assumes the Items in your Collection are Strings; use the correct Type for what you are storing in your Collection.
