How can I dynamically enable/disable context menu items

Recommended Posts

Hi Guys,

I would like to dynamically enable/disable context menu items.  Apparently, that isn't yet supported.  Does anyone have a workaround?

Christian Blackburn,


that isn't yet supported

Really, this looks pretty dynamic to me:

#include <GUIConstantsEx.au3>
#include <MsgBoxConstants.au3>


Func Example()
    GUICreate("My GUI Context Menu", 300, 200)

    Local $idContextmenu = GUICtrlCreateContextMenu()

    Local $idMenuDeactivate = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Deactivate", $idContextmenu)

    Local $idMenuActivate = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("Activate", $idContextmenu)


    ; Loop until the user exits.
    While 1
        Switch GUIGetMsg()
            Case $GUI_EVENT_CLOSE
            Case $idMenuDeactivate
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Menu Deactivated", 'Deactivated')
                GUICtrlSetState($idMenuDeactivate, $GUI_DISABLE)
            Case $idMenuActivate
                MsgBox($MB_SYSTEMMODAL, "Menu Activated", 'Activated')
                GUICtrlSetState($idMenuDeactivate, $GUI_ENABLE)
EndFunc   ;==>Example
