menuitems in VC++

I wonder if anyone can help me with a problem I'm having in Visual C++. Could anyone tell me how to display a bitmap and coloured text on a menu item? What I really need is a simple example, as I cant make head nor tail of the MFC help on insertmenuitem etc (It might as well be written in Greek).
thanks in advance, a desparing student

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

See SAMPLES\MFC\GENERAL\CTRLTEST example. There code you looking
for is in "custmenu.cpp".
