Menus

Menus

Question:
A book I have purchased on C++ programming describes how to make menus. It says to use the Resource Workshop that came with my Borland 4.0 compiler. However, whenever I make a menu, it compiles and runs without error, but it never shows or uses the menu. Is there a better way to do this, and if not, what’s the problem?

Answer:
When you create your application’s main window through the Windows API, one of the arguments is the menu. This should be the ID of the menu you created.

Unfortunately, it’s hard to be more specific without knowing more about what you are doing. If you are creating the window yourself, then you should simply be able to change that part of the code. However, if you are using one of Borland’s application frameworks, then you’ll need to look into your Borland documentation for how to make it use your menu resource.
