    Systray menu messages

    Hi,

    I decided not to use a template for my systray menu, and created a function to add menu items into a created menu:

    Code:
    void AddMenuItem(int id, char* str)
    {
      MENUITEMINFO mi;
      mi.cbSize = sizeof(MENUITEMINFO);
      mi.fMask = MIIM_TYPE|MIIM_ID;
      mi.fType = MFT_STRING;
      mi.wID = id;
      mi.dwTypeData = str;
    	
      InsertMenuItem(menu,0,TRUE, &mi);
    }
    I created a menu with 2 items:

    Code:
    case WM_RBUTTONDOWN: 
     menu = CreatePopupMenu();
     AddMenuItem(IDEXIT, "Exit!");
     AddMenuItem(IDSTARTM, "Stop wall cycling");
    
     SetForegroundWindow(hWndDlg);
     GetCursorPos(&p);
     TrackPopupMenu(menu,TPM_LEFTALIGN |TPM_RETURNCMD|TPM_RIGHTBUTTON,
    			p.x,p.y,0,hWndDlg,NULL);
     break;
    The menu appears correctly.
    Then i had to process the menu item messages:
    Code:
    case WM_COMMAND:
     switch(wParam)
     {
      case IDSTARTM:		
       //dostuff
       MessageBeep(0);
       break;
    
      case IDEXIT:		
       //dostuff
       MessageBeep(0);
       break;
    ....
     }
    But when i select a menu item, nothing happens. What i'm doing wrong here please?

    Thanks alot.

    When i create systray apps, i create the menu manually:
    Code:
      case WM_ICONNOTIFY:
    		switch(lParam){
    		case WM_RBUTTONUP:
    			SetForegroundWindow(d.hWndMain);
    			GetCursorPos(&p1);
    			mPopup = CreatePopupMenu();
    			AppendMenu(mPopup, MF_STRING|MF_ENABLED, 1, "Restore");
    			AppendMenu(mPopup, MF_SEPARATOR, 0, 0);
    			AppendMenu(mPopup, MF_STRING|MF_ENABLED, 3, "Close");
    			switch(TrackPopupMenu(mPopup ,TPM_RIGHTALIGN|TPM_LEFTBUTTON|TPM_RETURNCMD, p1.x, p1.y,0, d.hWndMain , NULL)){
    			case 1:// Restore				SetForegroundWindow(d.hWndMain);
    				TrayRemove();
    				d.bInTray = false;
    				ShowWindow(d.hWndMain, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
    				break;
    			case 3:// End				SendMessage(d.hWndMain, WM_CLOSE, 0, 0); break;
    			}
    			DestroyMenu(mPopup);
    			break;
    		case WM_LBUTTONDBLCLK:
    		case NIN_BALLOONUSERCLICK:
    			SetForegroundWindow(d.hWndMain);
    			TrayRemove();
    			d.bInTray = false;
    			ShowWindow(d.hWndMain, SW_SHOWNORMAL);
    			break;
    		}
    		break;
