Simplify Creating and Adding Menu Items

When creating menu items and adding them to a menu, you can shorten your code by combining two steps into one. Instead of creating the menu item and adding it in separate steps, such as:
 
Menu fileMenu = new Menu("File");
MenuItem fileExitMenuItem = new MenuItem("Exit");
fileMenu.add(fileExitMenuItem);
Take advantage of the fact that the add() method in the Menu class returns a reference to the item that added, which results in:
 
Menu fileMenu = new Menu("File");
MenuItem fileExitMenuItem = fileMenu.add(new MenuItem("Exit"));
This makes your code shorter and more readable, which can be a significant advantage if you have lots of menu items that you're adding to menus.
