MENUS AND TOOL BARS 

The Menu options can be checked, enabled, disabled, and popped up on an object.

The Menu Object:

The Menu control is used to generate a menu in the Visual Basic. It has numerous properties and only an event. It has no methods. A menu has titles like Project. Each title holds menu items. A separator can be used to group the associated items within one menu. The menu editor is used for generating the menu.

The Menu Editor:

Select the Tools and then Select the Menu Editor to open the menu editor. The menu editor will exhibit the properties as shown in figure. The significant properties are checked, caption, enabled, Name, shortcut & visible. Now Click on the form to make it the active form. Then only, the menu editor will be enabled. Or else it will be grayed and it cannot be selected.

(i) The Caption Property:

The Caption Property is the item's name or the title name. The text we type as the caption becomes the title or item under the title. You can set an & before any character of the caption. That character will be the accelerator for that item.

(ii)The Checked Property:

The Checked Property will put a check mark next to the menu item. The Title's cannot be checked. The check mark can be toggled. The checked property can be put to on or off during the run time.
