public virtual BarManager Manager { get; set; }

Property Value

Type Description

A BarManager responsible for managing the PopupMenuBase object.


For the PopupMenuBase object to work correctly, it must be bound to a BarManager or RibbonControl object. If the menu is not bound to the BarManager/RibbonControl, the menu is not displayed. Items displayed by the popup menu belong to the bound BarManager/RibbonControl.

When you drop a popup menu to a form at design time, it searches for a Bar Manager or Ribbon Control within this form. If any of these objects is found, the popup menu is bound to it. When creating a popup menu at runtime, you need to manually bind the menu to the BarManager/Ribbon Control via the menu’s constructor, the Manager or PopupMenuBase.Ribbon property.
