I would like to put a "What's this?" function in my program. I have already put a button with question mark in title bar to use this function. Now I would like to put the same function in menu or toolbar, but I don't what to do when user triggers this function in menu or toolbar.

I'm not sure what you're asking, but the following line might work to simulate a press on the question mark in the title bar.

Add in eg MenuItemClick handler:
PostMessage(Handle, WM_SYSCOMMAND, SC_CONTEXTHELP, 0);

Regards,

Erik.
