[Mono-winforms-list] ToolStripMenuItem question

I have the following code on a toolstripmenu

private void difficulty_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
  if (sender is ToolStripMenuItem)
     ToolStripMenuItem item = sender as ToolStripMenuItem;
     switch (item.Name)
        case "easy":
          difficulty = 1;
          dtime = 60;
          // item.Checked = true;
          hardness.Text = "Easy";
        // and so on for medium and hard levels

What I'd like to do is add a tick next to the menu item, but if I
uncomment the above commented line, a tick will appear, but then another
will appear if I select another level, but the original remains.

Is there a way to make the menu act as if the ticks are almost like
radio buttons in their operation (one is on, the rest can't be)?

I did think to try something like

(at the start of the winform)

private byte difftick;

then in the routine above.

if (difftick != difficulty)
   // untick what difftick was
   // tick the current item
   // set difftick to difficulty

Only problem in the ToolStripMenuItem, I can't see a way to do this.

Any help would be appreciated.
