MenuBar control in Flex4:

A MenuBar control displays a horizontal bar of menu items. The menu item has a pop-up sub menu(optional). It is a static control. It does not work as a pop-up menu control. First you will make a XML List for item and call it in a MenuBar control using dataProvider property for providing a data to the MenuBar control. You must define a labelField="@label" property in MenuBar control tag for showing a item value. You can set the icon image for label.
The tag of MenuBar control is <mx:MenuBar>.
