Hi everyone! I''m trying to learn Visual Studio .NET, and I have a little problem when trying to use Resource files in a very simple Win32 program. I''ve created a new res file, with a menu, that automatically is called IDR_MENU1. Automatically also, it''s created a file resource.h when VS includes some defines. Fast Quest: What I have to do for display the menu???. I suposed that in class register, WndClass.lpszMenuName = "IDR_MENU1" but it isn''t correct. Thanks a lot , Jacob.

IDR_MENU is a define for some number like this:
#define IDR_MENU 101 

in your resource.h

Although the lpszMenuName is a pointer, you can still use this number, by going through a converter macro (a cast).
WndClass.lpszMenuName = MAKEINTRESOURCE(IDR_MENU1);
