It can be useful to add separator bars to menus to set groups of menu options apart from each other. You can add a separator to any sub-menu at design time by choosing Separator from the drop-down box in the menu item design interface, as shown in Figure 4-4.
Note that if you want to add a separator to a top-level menu, you must do so programmatically by creating a new instance of the ToolStripSeparator control and inserting it into the correct location in the MenuStrip.Items collection, as shown here:
Dim aSeparator As New ToolStripSeparator MenuStrip1.Items.Insert(1, aSeparator)
ToolStripSeparator aSeparator = new Too1StripSeparator(); menuStrip1.Items.Insert(1, aSeparator);
