Putting a Menu on the Right Side

When designing a menu, how do I get an option (for example help) - to appear on the RIGHT hand side of the menu bar.

To position the Help Menu to the right side of the Menu Bar, use a backspace character (Chr$(8)) as the first character in the Caption property of the menu. You must do this at runtime, in the Form_Load event.

HelpMenu.Caption= Chr$(8) & HelpMenu.Caption
However, this is not good design. The right-justified help was something that was abandoned between Windows 3.0 and 3.1. If you're designing a product that you'd like to use the official "Designed for..." Windows logo on, you should not use right justified help.
