C# - Populating a MenuStrip with pure code

Hi guys 'n gals,

Could somebody please enlighten me in how I would create a MenuStrip in C# with pure code please? So far I have this:

menuStrip1.Items.Add("File");
menuStrip1.Items.Add("Edit");

I have no clue how to add items beneath those, and beneath those, etc...


Could somebody help me out here please?

Cheers!

AlexNek,

The link you gave was for MenuItems, rather than MenuStrip...

I didn't think of checking InitializeComponent though, shall give that a go!

AlexNek,

Sorry to be a pain, but could you give me an example, let's say I wanted to create

"File" - with "Exit" below it, how would I go about doing this?

Cheers!

Here you are
//from  InitializeComponent()
....
this.menuStrip1 = new System.Windows.Forms.MenuStrip();
...
            //
            // menuStrip1
            //
            this.menuStrip1.Items.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem[] {
            this.fileToolStripMenuItem});
            this.menuStrip1.Location = new System.Drawing.Point(0, 0);
            this.menuStrip1.Name = "menuStrip1";
            this.menuStrip1.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(593, 24);
            this.menuStrip1.TabIndex = 5;
            this.menuStrip1.Text = "menuStrip1";
            //
            // fileToolStripMenuItem
            //
            this.fileToolStripMenuItem.DropDownItems.AddRange(new System.Windows.Forms.ToolStripItem[] {
            this.openToolStripMenuItem,
            this.closeToolStripMenuItem,
            this.toolStripMenuItem1,
            this.exitToolStripMenuItem});
            this.fileToolStripMenuItem.Name = "fileToolStripMenuItem";
            this.fileToolStripMenuItem.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(35, 20);
            this.fileToolStripMenuItem.Text = "&File";
            //
            // openToolStripMenuItem
            //
            this.openToolStripMenuItem.Name = "openToolStripMenuItem";
            this.openToolStripMenuItem.Size = new System.Drawing.Size(152, 22);
            this.openToolStripMenuItem.Text = "&Open";
            //
