I''m trying to create a map editor and can''t seem to get my menu bar to show up, here is a snippet of the code and .rc file. Any help would be appreciated. winclass.cbSize = sizeof(WNDCLASSEX); = CS_DBLCLKS / CS_OWNDC / CS_HREDRAW / CS_VREDRAW; winclass.lpfnWndProc = WindowProc; winclass.cbClsExtra = 0; winclass.cbWndExtra = 0; winclass.hInstance = hinstance; winclass.hIcon = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION); winclass.hCursor = LoadCursor(NULL, IDC_ARROW); winclass.hbrBackground = (HBRUSH)GetStockObject(WHITE_BRUSH); winclass.lpszMenuName = "MainMenu"; winclass.lpszClassName = WINDOW_CLASS_NAME; winclass.hIconSm = LoadIcon(NULL, IDI_APPLICATION); *******.rc file #include "gyraRes.h" ///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // // Menu // MainMenu MENU DISCARDABLE { POPUP "File" { MENUITEM "Open", MENU_FILE_ID_OPEN MENUITEM "Close", MENU_FILE_ID_CLOSE } }

I am not certain, as I do not have a reference in front of me, but I think it goes something like LoadMenu("MainMenu"). I have a program that uses it... if you want me to tell you for sure, email me and I will get back to you with some actual working code


You are not a real programmer until you end all your sentences with semicolons;
