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.
