Is there a way to make a menu stay open after an item has been selected?

In mainMenu1 I have a heading of Settings. Under Settings is a list of options the user can select by clicking on them which toggles a check mark. Unfortunately, upon each click the menus close which makes the user start over by clicking on Settings and then going to the next item. I would like the menu to stay open, allowing the user to select mutiple items and then close the menu by clicking away from the menu area. How can I accomplish this?

It's impossible. Make Options dialog with multiple check boxes or put all these items on the toolbar.

System.Windows.Forms.Mainmenu does not support this. Menus are themselves are Forms with no borders and no titlebars. You can make your own controls and can acheive what you want.

But i would recommend that make a Settings Form or Options Form to do this ... Here are a couple of links for options Dialog

the user can also use shortcut keys to check/uncheck the setting options
