MENUITEMINFO info  Overview  Group

The MENUITEMINFO structure contains information about a menu item.

typedef struct tagMENUITEMINFO {
UINT cbSize;     UINT fMask;     UINT fType;     UINT fState;     UINT wID;     HMENU hSubMenu;     HBITMAP hbmpChecked;     HBITMAP hbmpUnchecked;     DWORD dwItemData;     LPTSTR dwTypeData;     UINT cch; } MENUITEMINFO, FAR *LPMENUITEMINFO;  

Members

cbsize
Size of structure, in bytes.
fMask
Members to retrieve or set. This member can be one or more of these values:

Value

Meaning

MIIM_CHECKMARKS

Retrieves or sets the hbmpChecked and hbmpUnchecked members.

MIIM_DATA

Retrieves or sets the dwItemData member.

MIIM_ID

Retrieves or sets the wID member.

MIIM_STATE

Retrieves or sets the fState member.

MIIM_SUBMENU

Retrieves or sets the hSubMenu member.

MIIM_TYPE

Retrieves or sets the fType and dwTypeData members.

fType
Menu item type. This member can be one or more of these values:

Value

Meaning

MFT_BITMAP

Displays the menu item using a bitmap. The low-order word of the dwTypeData member is the bitmap handle, and the cch member is ignored.

MFT_MENUBARBREAK

Places the menu item on a new line (for a menu bar) or in a new column (for a drop-down menu, submenu, or shortcut menu). For a drop-down menu, submenu, or shortcut menu, a vertical line separates the new column from the old.

MFT_MENUBREAK

Places the menu item on a new line (for a menu bar) or in a new column (for a drop-down menu, submenu, or shortcut menu). For a drop-down menu, submenu, or shortcut menu, the columns are not separated by a vertical line.

MFT_OWNERDRAW

Assigns responsibility for drawing the menu item to the window that owns the menu. The window receives a WM_MEASUREITEM message before the menu is displayed for the first time, and a WM_DRAWITEM message whenever the appearance of the menu item must be updated. If this value is specified, the dwTypeData member contains an application-defined 32-bit value.

MFT_RADIOCHECK

Displays checked menu items using a radio-button mark instead of a check mark if the hbmpChecked member is NULL.

MFT_RIGHTJUSTIFY

Right-justifies the menu item and any subsequent items. This value is valid only if the menu item is in a menu bar.

MFT_SEPARATOR

Specifies that the menu item is a separator. A menu item separator appears as a horizontal dividing line. The dwTypeData and cch members are ignored. This value is valid only in a drop-down menu, submenu, or shortcut menu.

MFT_STRING

Displays the menu item using a text string. The dwTypeData member is the pointer to a null-terminated string, and the cch member is the length of the string.

The MFT_BITMAP, MFT_SEPARATOR, and MFT_STRING values cannot be combined with one another.

fState
Menu item state. This member can be one or more of these values:

Value

Meaning

MFS_CHECKED

Checks the menu item. For more information about checked menu items, see the hbmpChecked member.

MFS_DEFAULT

Specifies that the menu item is the default. A menu can contain only one default menu item, which is displayed in bold.

MFS_DISABLED

Disables the menu item so that it cannot be selected, but does not gray it.

MFS_ENABLED

Enables the menu item so that it can be selected. This is the default state.

MFS_GRAYED

Disables the menu item and grays it so that it cannot be selected.

MFS_HILITE

Highlights the menu item.

MFS_UNCHECKED

Unchecks the menu item. For more information about unchecked menu items, see the hbmpUnchecked member.

MFS_UNHILITE

Removes the highlight from the menu item. This is the default state.

wID
Application-defined 16-bit value that identifies the menu item.
hSubMenu
Handle to the drop-down menu or submenu associated with the menu item. If the menu item is not an item that opens a drop-down menu or submenu, this member is NULL.
hbmpChecked
Handle to the bitmap to display next to the item if it is checked. If this member is NULL, a default bitmap is used. If the MFT_RADIOCHECK type value is specified, the default bitmap is a bullet. Otherwise, it is a check mark.
hbmpUnchecked
Handle to the bitmap to display next to the item if it is not checked. If this member is NULL, no bitmap is used.
dwItemData
Application-defined value associated with the menu item.
dwTypeData
Content of the menu item. The meaning of this member depends on the menu item type: the MFT_BITMAP, MFT_SEPARATOR, or MFT_STRING values.
cch
Length of the menu item text, when information is received about a menu item of the MFT_STRING type. This value is zero for other menu item types. This member is ignored when the content of a menu item is set.
