Or...

If you want to create it dynamically, set the parent of the new menu item to be the menu item you want it to be a sub menu of.

eg: MyMenuItem := TMenuItem.Create(Self); // Where self = the form
     MySubMenuItem.Insert(MyMenuItem, Index); // Where index is where in the menu you want it to appear

You also need to set the OnClick event etc for the new menu item...

Cheers,

Raymond.

when you are creating the menu, Right click on it with the mouse
and click on "Create Sub-menu"

or something like that:
Tmenuitem.add(MI:tmenuitem);
