icons on context menus

Hello,
I have written some context menus in my application, however I see
lots of nice icons on the menus that microsoft use. It is not obvious how one
would add these icons to the menu items. Ideas ideas how you would do this.

Thanx in advance
Robert

Hi, A project I am working on has a requirement for dynamic menus. For the most part this works really well. The menus I'm creating a based on files and directories, so naturally the menu creation takes some time. The approach I took was to override the OnSelect method of the MenuItem class, which had code to populate the

Hi, If I modify my Registry adding a new key HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\*\shell\Use My App\command with a (Default) Value of C:\Program Files\Doug\DotNetApps\MyApp.exe "%1" then right clicking on files in the Explorer Windows opens the context menu with the option "Use My App" and selecting this runs My App with the selected file name.

Hi, I know that Windows comes with own icons and bitmaps for menus, toolbars, etc, which are compiled into ressource dlls. Is it possible to use these images into the own program and how do I do that? I suppose these images all have some name, which I would use to get the icon for let's say "New File" and put it on my apps toolbar... Is there some place with docs what images/icons are available and in which dll? Thanks for your replies.

Hello people! I have a quite complicated question. While creating a ToolBar in code, it is possible to pass the standard icons located in COMMCTRL to the image list of the ToolBar. I'm talking about the icons that most of programs use, like: STD_COPY, STD_CUT, STD_DELETE, STD_FILENEW, STD_FILEOPEN and so on. This is very useful because you don't need to load these icons as resources anymore, because they exist already in system. My...

Hi, is there any way to add menu items to a context menu with icons next to them. When I declare a menuitem, it does not seem like there is a .icon property or anything similar or intuitive like that. An example that illustrates this is right clicking on your desktop, choosing "New", and for each type of file it displays a different icon next to it. Thanks for your help!

Hi, I have an MDI application that uses a generic "ShowPage" routine in a module that is called when I want to display a child form. The basic idea is that in the module I have declared each form as follows: Friend F0 As frmMain Friend F1 As frmStart Friend F2 As frmSearch Then in my ShowPage routine (which is passed a string "pageToShow" which is the name of the form I wish to open), I first check to see if we already have an instance...

Hi, I have just searched MSDN and Google and can't find a tutorial about how to add icons to menus in a VB.NET or C#.NET Windows Forms application. Does anyone know how it's done or can point me at a tutorial that is easy to follow. In anticipation, thanks. Graham Sivill Martley, Near Worcetser UK.

Hello folks, I am unable to find appropriate documentation on the type promotion of bit-fields when using the generalised comparison operator "<=>". The problem is that using the GNU compilers, it seems that the internal comparison operator "<=>" tries to promote arguments from unsigned to signed. This is as boiled down as I can make it. Here is my compilation command: g++-12 -std=c++20 -Wnarrowing bit_field.cpp Here is the code in...
