    menu's

    using msvc:
    okay i've been writing my rc scripts by hand and I thought I would try to use the resource editor for a change. I've made a menu and got a rc file but when i compile no res file appears and the menu dosent show up. im stumped!!!
    When you write them manually you do MyMenu MENU where MyMenu is your menu name, then when you define your window class you do wcl.lpszMenuName = "MyMenu"; which includes your menu. What do you put here when you've created it in the editor? The ID?
    Geez i fell like im going crazy.

    Well you'll have it named like ID_MENU or something in the editor right? So you need to use a macro to convert it to an acceptable format.

    MAKEINTRESOURCE( ID_MENU );

    Try that and let me know.
