Windows Programming - Menus

Posted on 2004-04-22

I have a menu using check marks.  Each time I select an option from the menu I want the option to be checked and all other options to be unchecked.  Does anybody know how I can "refresh" the menu bar after selecting an option as after selecting nothing is changing.

In my example:
Create 5 items in the menu the Main one ListItem1 beneath that one 2,3,4 and 5

then use this code:
private void menuItem2_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

private void menuItem3_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

private void menuItem4_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)

private void menuItem5_Click(object sender, System.EventArgs e)
private void CheckUncheck(MenuItem ClickedItem)
      foreach(MenuItem myItem in menuItem1.MenuItems)
            if(myItem.Text != ClickedItem.Text)
            myItem.Checked = false;
            myItem.Checked = true;

Take care,
