PALETTE ICON & EXAMPLE
The following are the properties that apply to this object. Some are defined in Common Properties and are linked to their appropriate page.
|Items||These are the TMenuItems that make up the menu. This is what the user will actually see. To create new items or edit/delete existing ones you can either click on the button in the property field or, right click on the TMainMenu object and choose the Menu Designer option.|
NOTE: At the current time you cannot add or remove menu items at runtime. However, if you have extra items that you add during design you can turn them on or off (using the Visible option in the line item).
|Images||If you want to include images in the menu you need to specify the TImageList here. You will then choose individual images during menu design (creating the line items).|
This object doesn't do anything by itself. You have to create menu items with the menu editor before any items are visible.
There are no events for this object.
