I inserting menu items but they don't seem to be showing up. Is there a trick like with toolbars where you have to invalidate the parent popup link?

Yes after making a change do some code like this to invalidate the layout:
barManager.DockableToolBars["Standard"].Invalidate(InvalidationLevels.All, InvalidationTypes.All);
Of course pass in the appropriate toolbar key instead of Standard.

Does the same thing work for the MenuBar? I can't seem to get it work on a menubar?

Yes, menu bars are a subclass of dockable toolbars. If you are having trouble, then please post some repro steps that we can paste in the sample project and we'll take a look.

Doh! It was the LoadBarLayoutFromFile that was overwriting my menu bar insertions. Hmm, I think I have a way to work around that problem. :-)
