Looking for UDF to add menu with bitmaps icon y submenu - (Moved)


Recommended Posts

hello community, I wanted to ask you if you know any udf that allows me to include icons in both menu and submenu using autoit functions like

$menu = GUICtrlCreateMenu ("Menu")
$menu_item = GUICtrlCreateMenuItem("item 1", $menu)

I found an interesting function that allowed me to add icons in

bmp format but only for the main menu, it does not work for the submenus because I am quite new to developing with AutoIT

The function I use to add to the main menus is this:

Func AddImageToMenu($ParentMenu, $IndexType, $MenuIndex, $BitmapMenu)
    $hBmpMenu = DllCall("user32.dll", "hwnd", "LoadImage", "hwnd", 0, _
                                                           "str", $BitmapMenu, _
                                                           "int", $IMAGE_BITMAP, _
                                                           "int", 0, _
                                                           "int", 0, _
                                                           "int", BitOR($LR_LOADFROMFILE, $LR_LOADMAP3DCOLORS))
    $hBmpMenu = $hBmpMenu[0]
    DllCall("user32.dll", "int", "SetMenuItemBitmaps", "hwnd", GUICtrlGetHandle($ParentMenu), _
                                                       "int",  $MenuIndex, _
                                                       "int",  $IndexType, _
                                                       "hwnd", $hBmpMenu, _
                                                       "hwnd", $hBmpMenu)

It works very well but this function uses functions that I still don't quite understand how they work but I tried it and it works correctly. What I need is that if it is possible that this same function can be modified so that it also allows adding icons in the submenus of a main menu

thanks and best regards
