I'm coveting the Office 97 Menu look and trying to do the same in D1.
Question...Can the CheckMark Size Be Adjusted Upwards From 14x14 (This is too small) using something like 'SETMENUCHECKMARKDIMENSION' ???
If Not, How Can I Get Bitmap And Text On One Line?

The latest version of delphi (V3 beta is available) supports this and using it would probably save you lots of trouble ;^)

Duly Noted, But I'd Still Like To Know How They (Micro$oft) Did It And If It Can Be Simulated In D1.

Commented:
I believe there is a Knowledge Base article on how to do this with VB3...if you an find the article, then it should be absolutely no problem (probably easier) doing it with D1.

You might go to Micrsoft's web site and search their knowledge base.

Or you might find a component on the Delphi Super Page

I have the SW package to do it (menus) it has the same functionality as MagicMenus but costs $20 instead of... ;-)
Can be found on Delphi DELI or Torry's Delphi pages.
