Property Value

Type Description
ItemLinkMode

One of the ItemLinkMode enumeration values.

Available values:

Name Description
TextOnly

Specifies that an item is represented only by its text, and the item's clickable content is bounded by the text length.

TextAndImage

Specifies that an item is represented by both the text and image (if any), and the item's clickable content is bounded by the total size of the text and image.

ContentBounds

Specifies that an item is represented by both the text and image (if any), and the item's clickable content extends to the width of the parent control's boundaries.

Remarks

Use the ItemLinkMode property to specify the manner in which menu items are displayed as links within the menu control. This property controls whether the clickable content of each menu item which serves as a link (the item whose MenuItem.NavigateUrl property is defined) extends to the width of the submenu's boundaries (see the ItemLinkMode.ContentBounds value) or is bound by the size of the item's text (see the ItemLinkMode.TextOnly value) or the total size of the text and image (see the ItemLinkMode.TextAndImage).

Note that when the ItemLinkMode property is set to ItemLinkMode.ContentBounds, the menu's items can be hot-tracked (if the hot-track feature is enabled via the MenuSettingsBase.EnableHotTrack property).

The image below shows two Menus in two link modes - ContentBounds and TextOnly.
