Used to define the choices in a Config.sys menu.


blocktitleThe title of the block in Config.sys containing the commands to be executed if that item is selected.
displaytextThe text to be displayed on the menu (up to 70 characters, including spaces and other normal delimeters). If displaytext is omitted, the blocktitle is displayed.


  1. The MenuItem statement can only be used in a [menu] or [submenu] block in Config.sys.

  2. If blocktitle is not used as an actual block name in Config.sys, an error message is displayed when Config.sys runs, but the menu still displays.

See Configuration Menu Statements for example.
