    'Setup MDI stuff

    Me.IsMdiContainer = True

    'Add File Menu

    Dim miFile As MenuItem = MainMenu.MenuItems.Add("&File")

    miFile.MergeOrder = 0

    miFile.MergeType = MenuMerge.MergeItems

    Dim miAddDoc As MenuItem = New MenuItem("&Add Document", New EventHandler(AddressOf Me.FileAdd_Clicked), Shortcut.CtrlA)

    miAddDoc.MergeOrder = 100

    Dim miExit As MenuItem = New MenuItem("E&xit", New EventHandler(AddressOf Me.FileExit_Clicked), Shortcut.CtrlX)

    miExit.MergeOrder = 110

    Hello Tim,

    Thank you for your interest in RadRibbonBar.

    Could you specify in which path of the RibbonBar you want to add these menu items? In case you want to add menu items in Ribbon's StartMenu, you can access the StartMenu using the code below:


    Be aware that the RibbonBar is not designed (regarding the MS UI Guidelines) to support MDI applications and includes only the Min, Restore and Close buttons for the child forms. Examine the RibbonBar examples in the Quick Start Framework to get familiar with the functionality of the ribbon.

    I hope this helps.

    All the best,
    the Telerik team
