Separator line in the wrong place

Recommended Posts

Edifice

Hello

I've created a program, of which this is a small part:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>

$mainGUI    = GUICreate ("Test", 500, 450)

; Creates GUI-menu
$menu           = GUICtrlCreateMenu("&Filer")
    $mntm_save              = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Gem", $menu)
    $mntm_open              = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Åben", $menu)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
    $separator1             = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("", $menu, 2)
    $mntm_exit              = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Luk", $menu)
$mntm_functions             = GUICtrlCreateMenu("Funktioner", -1, 1)
    $mntm_usedefaultprinter = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Brug Standard Printer", $mntm_functions)
    $separator2             = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("", $mntm_functions, 2)
    $mntm_settings          = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Indstillinger", $mntm_functions, 1)
    GUICtrlSetState(-1, $GUI_DISABLE)
    
    GUISetState()
    While GUIGetMsg() <> $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
    WEnd

However, I would like the separator line in "Funktioner" to be between "indstillinger" and "Brug standard printer", however I just cannot figure out why it only wants to be at the bottom.

It's properly just a small stupid mistake, but I've stared at it all day. Any help is as always greatly appreciated :mellow:

$separator1 = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("", $menu, 2)

Because you specify the menu item number (2). According to the help file:

"Allows you to define the entry number to be created. The entries are numbered starting at 0."

So number the items yourself or let AutoIt do the job.

Edifice,

Swap the menuentry parameters - at the moment you have "Indstillinger" set as 1 and the separator as 2, so Autoit does just that. :mellow:

Personally I never use the menuentry parameter when I construct a menu from scratch, I just put the elements in the right order in the code. The menuentry parameter only really comes into its own when you want to insert something into an existing menu.
