I have a set ToolStripMenuItem that is registered as a site for a set of other ToolStripMenuItems (like File and New/Open/Save/Exit) that are bound to Commands.

Depending on the active WorkItem I need to hide the child ToolStripMenuItems (like hiding New/Open/Save/Exit). I can do that by setting the CommandStatus to Unavailable. However, I cannot find a way to hide the root ('File') entry.

I can do it by scanning the root ToolStrip and check for parents without children, but I don't like that solution...
