ToolStripMenuItem is a ToolStripDropDownItem that works with ToolStripDropDownMenu and ContextMenuStrip to handle the special highlighting, layout, and column arrangement for menus.

In order for a ToolStripMenuItem to be displayed, you must add it to a MenuStrip or ContextMenuStrip.

The ToolStripMenuItem class provides properties that enable you to configure the appearance and functionality of a menu item. To display a check mark next to a menu item, use the Checked property. Use this feature to identify a menu item that is selected in a list of mutually exclusive menu items. For example, if you have a set of menu items for setting the color of text in a TextBox control, use the Checked property to identify which color is currently selected. Use the ShortcutKeys property to define a keyboard combination that can be pressed to select the menu item.

The following code example adds a ShortcutKeyDisplayString to the specified menu items of a ContextMenuStrip. This code example is part of a larger example available in the ToolStripManager class overview.

// Distinguish the merged items by setting the shortcut display string.
foreach (ToolStripMenuItem tsmi in cmsItemsToMerge.Items)
{
    tsmi.ShortcutKeyDisplayString = "Merged Item";
}
