Hey Guys.
I'm having some difficulty getting my ToolStripMenuItem objects visible. Basically, I have a MenuStrip which is on an MDI parent form. On the File DropDownList there is another DDL called "Close Views...". On that DDL I have five generic tsmItems which have their Visible property set to False. Here's the primary code:
Dim menuItem As ToolStripMenuItem = Nothing
Dim itemList As ToolStripItemCollection = Me.tsmCloseViews.DropDownItems()
For Each tsmObj As Object In itemList
    menuItem = TryCast(tsmObj, ToolStripMenuItem)
    If menuItem.Tag = "(Open)" Then
        With menuItem
            .Tag = NewForm.Name
            .Text = "Close " & FormText
            .GetCurrentParent.Visible = True
            .Visible = True
            .Available = True
        End With
        Exit For
    End If

I suspect that the modifiers on the tsmItems need to be set to Protected or some other little setting that I am overlooking.

Any input would be appreciated!

What I have tried:

As shown in the above code, I have tried several methods which are described in various posts on the internet.

Well, I'm not entirely sure why, but moving the code out of the module and into the Main class where the MenuStrip was contained solved the problem.

I guess we'll consider this one closed.
