Merging main menus

P: n/a
For the life of me, I can't seem to merge main menu items from child to
parent with MDI forms. I can merge sub-menus, but not main menu items.

So I have a parent form with:
File Windows Help

And a child form with:
Edit View

And when the child form is displayed, I want the menu to be:
File Edit View Windows Help

As I said, I can merge a File menu on a child with a File menu on the
parent, but the above escapes me. I've spent hours on this. Can anyone
HEEEEEEELLLLLLLLP?

TIA,
Tom

Tom,

What program language are you using, just search for this in one of the
Google newsgroup search you get plenty of answers.

Thanks Cor. I have searched for days and can't find the answer. There is a
plethora of details about merging the sub-menus, but I can't find info about
merging (inserting) the main menus. At least it doesn't work as advertised,
for me. Also, I'm using VB, but I don't think it matters much what language
I'm using. The technique should be language agnostic.
