WinAPI menu

I’ve written a C++ program in Visual Studio 2008 using OpenGL, GLUT, and GLUI. I wish to add a winAPI menu to the top of the window (not the popup ones). I’m wondering how I should go about in doing this? Thanks!

what do you mean by not the pop up ones?

Like I want the ones that appear on top of the window instead of the right click or middle click menus.

lol ok

1- create a resource for the menu, goto resource view and create a menu into the project. Editing the menu is simple

2- make sure resource.h is included in where you are creating the window

3- where you create and register the class add the name of the menu resource ( for example where iv bolded )

m_hInst = instance;

	// Register your window "class" with Windows
	//wc.cbSize = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX);
	wc.cbClsExtra = 0;
	wc.cbWndExtra = 0;
	wc.hbrBackground = 0;
	wc.hCursor = LoadCursor(0, IDC_ARROW);
	wc.hIcon = 0;
	wc.hInstance = instance;
	wc.lpfnWndProc = wndproc;
	wc.lpszClassName = L"name";
	if ( 0 == RegisterClass( &wc ) )
		throw std::runtime_error( "RegisterClass failed" );

4- in callback do

switch ( msg )
			wmId    = LOWORD(wParam);
			wmEvent = HIWORD(wParam);
			// Parse the menu selections:
			switch (wmId)
			case **menu button id**:
                                 // code here for button

Thank you, that’s just what I needed :smiley:
