We are working on a expert and simple version of our application by hiding TMenu Items.

TmenuIte,.Visible := false is working well for sub items but not for items in the top row, how to hide that item ?

To hide the top menu item use:
MainMenu1.Items[0].Visible := false; // for the first item
MainMenu1.Items[1].Visible := false; // for the second item
and so on.
Or you can use its direct name (that particular item name):
The name of that item.Visible := false;

Is it placed as buttons on the Toolbar?
If yes, then you can just refer to the button:
ToolBar1.Buttons[x].visible := false; // x can be: 0 for the first button and 1 for the second and so on

Open in new window
