    you'll have to elaborate on what you want to happen.

    if you want to make a menu with submenus, do this:

    HMENU hMenuBar; //the menu bar
    HMENU hMenuPopup; //A popup menu
    HMENU hNestMenu; //A popup within the popup
    hMenuBar=CreateMenu(); //Create the menu bar
    hMenuFile=CreatePopupMenu(); //Create popup
    hNestMenu=CreatePopupMenu(); //Create popup
    //Now just add one menu to another
    AppendMenu(hMenuBar,MF_POPUP|MF_STRING,(UINT)hMenuPopup,"&Menu 1");
        AppendMenu(hMenuPopup,MF_POPUP|MF_STRING,(UINT)hNestMenu,"&Menu 2");
    i know people will tell me that AppendMenu has been superseeded by InsertMenuItem, but its much easier to use.

    Okay, the basic idea is, you need a menu bar as a base. then you add items to it, either single items or popup menus. if you're adding a menu, specify MF_POPUP as well as MF_STRING. you always need MF_STRING because every menu item has a string.

    that should be adequate, unless you're using resources. in that case, i'll never speak to you again .
