Dynamic Menu in Windows C# Application

In my c# windows application, I have created 10 drop down menu's, mnuFile0, mnuFile1, ...., mnuFile9.  I've read in a field from a db and wish to update the .Text items of the drop down menu's to the contents of the db field.  In action script, this would be the way (using eval command):

for (i=0; i<9; i++) {
    MenuItem mnu = Eval("mnuFile" + i);
    mnu.Text = DBRecordField[i];
    mnu.Visible = True;
}

After spending some time researching FindControl(ID) only to realize this was for web pages, is there a C# windows application equivelant to Eval?  Somehow I get the feeling there isn't, is there another way?

Many thanks.

your 10 menuitems should be part of a MenuItems collection of a Mainmenu or other menuitem control, can't you just loop this collection?

for (int i=0;i<menuItem1.MenuItems.Count;i++)
// or for (int i=0;i<mainMenu1.MenuItems.Count;i++)
{
   menuItem1.MenuItems[i].Text = DBRecordField[i];
 }
