Remarks

BarHeaderItem is a bar item that can be added to a PopupMenu or BarSubItem (sub-menu) to give a caption to a set of items that follow this BarHeaderItem.

PopupMenu-HeaderItems

The items that follow the BarHeaderItem in the PopupMenu/BarSubItem are arranged in one column by default. You can arrange them in multiple columns by setting the BarHeaderItem.MultiColumn property to True. Multi-column mode settings (including the number of columns and item text visibility) can be customized using the BarHeaderItem.OptionsMultiColumn property.

To enable multi-column mode for all items in the PopupMenu and BarSubItem, use the PopupMenu.MultiColumn and BarLinkContainerItem.MultiColumn inherited property, respectively. If the BarHeaderItem.MultiColumn property is set to Default, the multi-column mode availability is specified by the MultiColumn property of the item's owner menu. It is possible to customize multi-column mode settings in a centralized way, using these properties:

TIP

If you only need to display a caption at the top of the PopupMenu, use the PopupMenu.MenuCaption and PopupMenu.ShowCaption properties.
