I want to create a multiline contextmenustrip,i.e.,I want to have 1 menu multiline and the rest single line.I tried inserting "&vbnewline" at runtime while assigning the text property,it worked but the height of all the other menus increased as well.I want to know if its possible to keep the height of all menu constant and just increase 1 in a single contextmenustrip.Thanx for any cooperation.

Hi,
 
You can define the AutoSize property to false and define your own size.
Example:

        Dim item As New ToolStripMenuItem
        item.AutoSize = False
        item.Size = New Size(120, 100)
        item.Text = "line 1" & vbNewLine & "line 2"
        Me.ContextMenuStrip1.Items.Add(item)

Open in new window
