MultiItemClass Class

MultiItem CoType.

Product Availability

Available with ArcGIS Desktop.


A MultiItem can be used when items on a menu can't be determined prior to runtime or the items need to be modified based on the state of the system. A good example of this is the menu items at the bottom of the File menu representing the most recently used files. The IMultiItem interface allows a single object to act like several adjacent menu items. During runtime, the framework will notify MultiItem commands when their host menu is about to be shown. At this point, all the commands implementing IMultiItem can query the system to determine how many items should be represented and how each should appear.
