    Thank you very much Scott and Borje for your tips on creation of menus without popups.
    Since I am using DDTs I have implemented your tip, Borje, and, of course, it works.

    Thanks again,


    Edmund

    If you give the menu item the same ID as the button, the two will
    invoke the same associated action. Like:
    Code:
    CONTROL ADD BUTTON, hDlg, %IDCANCEL, "E&xit", 50, 50, 40, 14
     
    MENU NEW BAR TO hMnu
    MENU NEW POPUP TO hMnuFile
    MENU ADD STRING,  hMnuFile, "E&xit here too", %IDCANCEL, %MF_ENABLED
    MENU ATTACH hMnu, hDlg
    ------------------

    I'm old fashioned, I still do mine in the resource file and then load them, although the prospect of creating and deleting menu's is awesome, just haven't had a need.

    But if this helps, this is an RC file from my Winlog for Windows 2000 product.

    Code:
    //* FILE
    #define IDM_CLEAR             WM_USER       + 2048    // Clear Log
    #define IDM_PRINT             IDM_CLEAR     + 1       // Print
    #define IDM_SAVEAS            IDM_PRINT     + 1       // SaveAs
    #define IDM_EXIT              IDM_SAVEAS    + 1       // Exit
    
    //* EDIT
    #define IDM_COPY              IDM_EXIT       + 1       // Copy
    
    //* VIEW
    #define IDM_STATUS            IDM_COPY       + 1      //VIEW STATUS
    #define IDM_LOGFILE	      IDM_STATUS     + 1
    #define IDM_BADPASS	      IDM_LOGFILE     + 1      //VIEW BAD PASS ATTEMPTS
    #define IDM_OPTIONS           IDM_BADPASS    + 1      //OPTIONS
    //* HELP
    #define IDM_HELP              IDM_OPTIONS      + 1       // Help
    #define IDM_ABOUT             IDM_HELP      + 1       // About box

    I have no problem with popup menues but I can't figure out how to create a menu item (MainMenu?) that could be used as a button (a menu item without a popup).
    It means that, upon being clicked at, this menu item could invoke the associated action.

    Any help in this regard will highly be appreciated,

    Edmund
