Add menu and write your code under menu click event

    Private Sub Mymenu_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As
System.EventArgs) Handles Mymenu.Click

        TextBox1.Text = "Menu is clicked"

    End Sub

put a mainmenu or contextmenu on the form
add menuitem to it
double-click the item and then you can write code like

 Private Sub MenuItem2_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles MenuItem2.Click
......
    End Sub

VB.Net set each menuitem as an component(object) and the mainmenu as container
so we can write event for menuitem
the full action is doing by event process know as button click event

Each menuitem has its own Click event (unless you handle them all with the same method). You can add code to each menu item click event.
