hi all

my question is simple ,i have a gui with a context menu add on

and want to add some icons to my context menu like in explorer context's menu

like in this image : http://img187.imageshack.us/img187/3751/11176888fq4.jpg

and i don't want to use custom menu like ModernMenu UDF , i know it can be done

normally since explorer does it

so any one ?

okay after searching the WinAPIs i finally found what

i wanted and i also found a udf used with it

the WinAPI function : SetMenuItemBitmaps

How do you know what methods explorer using? Posted Image

If you don't want to use «GUI/Tray Menu with icons and colors», then you will have to build your own functions to set icons to the menu. I don't understand what is not "normal" in this UDF :) - This UDF is the best solution for now :o

well i am trying to emulate the explorer context's menu in my menu

so i don't want to add custom icons , i know ModernMenu is the best

solution but it will not emulate an exact copy of the explorer's menu

so i am searching for the way that explorer does it in making this menu

Istead I want the same context menu of Explorer. I don't like ModernMenu because show the menus Windows 98 style.

Is there a way to create a menu with Vista style?
