28.1 Overview

Menuitem class describes a single menu item. You can use all of the gadtools menus features expect image menus here.

Since Menuitem class is a subclass of Family class, you can add other menu items as children of a menu item to indicate sub menus. MUI does not limit the level of sub menus, but the operating system currently allows a maximum nesting level of one. Because of this, children of menu items should not contain other menu items for now, the results are unpredictable.

Menuitems must always be embedded inside a <menu> tag which in turn have to be embedded inside a <menustrip> tag. See Menustrip class for details.

Please note that the XML tag for menuitem class is just <item> and not <menuitem>.

See Menustrip class for an example.
