Office Menus

P: n/a
LC
Could someone please advise how i could i have menus within my apps as the
same as Office 2003. I think i have to add some sort of reference into my
toolbox but do i need to download some kind of SDK before doing that? Any
help would be appreciated.

Thanks

there is a big difference between office menu's and that menu... office
menu's are done on the old basis of rebar's which are not the same as a
standard windows menu... VB 2005 will have the new menus in them by default.

Hi LC,

I've reviewed the article and you are correct. What you have to do is
download the sample application; then add the component to your toolbar (its
name is office menu control.dll and it can be found in the release
subdirectory of the project); then you should be able to reference it. I am
going to try it now just for my own edification, but I currently am very
happy using the same menu that Herfried referred to, available at
divil.co.uk.

HTH,

Bernie Yaeger

Hi LC,

Another update - yes, it works, but setting colors, fonts etc seem to
require changes to base drawing elements, and the supposed 'test solution'
doesn't have a solution in it.

You're better off with the menu Herfried referred to - it's easy to change
colors, add icons, etc.
