You can create the menus dynamically...here's a simple example:
Public Class Form1

    Private Sub ContextMenuStrip1_Opening(sender As Object, e As System.ComponentModel.CancelEventArgs) Handles ContextMenuStrip1.Opening
        ContextMenuStrip1.Items.Clear() ' completely remove all menus

        ' ... access the database ...

        ' dynamically create some menus with the DB info and add them to the context menu:
        Dim mnuTSI As New ToolStripMenuItem()
        mnuTSI.Text = "Dynamic Menu"
        AddHandler mnuTSI.Click, AddressOf TSI_Click
        ContextMenuStrip1.Items.Add(mnuTSI)
    End Sub

    Private Sub TSI_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Dim mnuTSI As ToolStripMenuItem = DirectCast(sender, ToolStripMenuItem)
        MessageBox.Show("You clicked on: " & mnuTSI.Text)

        Select Case mnuTSI.Text
            Case "Dynamic Menu"

            Case "Something else"

        End Select
    End Sub

End Class

Open in new window


*You may not need to do this each time the Menu is opening...depends on your setup and application.  If you can do it once when the application loads that would be better.
