Visual Basic (Usage) 
Dim instance As ICommandGroup

System.int MenuPosition(

Property Value

Position of the CommandGroup in the CommandManager

NOTE: Specify 0 to add the CommandGroup to the beginning of the CommandMananger, or specify -1 to add it to the end of the CommandManager.


If setting the position of the CommandGroup using this property, you must use it before using ICommandGroup::Activate. If you use this property after using ICommandGroup::Activate, then this property has no effect. 

If you do not use this property to set the position of the ICommandGroup, then the position specified in ICommandManager::CreateCommandGroup is used.

Calling this property to get the position of the CommandGroup returns the position of the CommandGroup set by either this property or ICommandManager::CreateCommandGroup.
