View Mode

To view this property in the Object Browser panel and in other panels and dialogs, activate the Advanced view mode.

Property Value

A Menu object that corresponds to the submenu.

Remarks

Note concerning GWT MenuBar controls: Due to the specifics of GWT MenuBar controls, you can access submenus via the SubMenu property only when the menu is visible. In order to get access to a submenu, you should invoke it first. Otherwise, the “Cannot obtain the popup menu” error will occur.
