Hello there,

How do I force menu items (those from main menu bar) to repaint themselves? I mean I cant send
wm_drawitem myself can I? So how do I do? Need it sorta bad!
Or how can I activate some menu item from within my program... Like send
wm_menuselect? Is there any way to do that?

Hi,
for your repaint problem just a guess, try sending a WM_NCPAINT-Message to your form.

Hope this helps,

??? Just call this : TMenuItemName.Click;

Like if your menu item has the name Select1 :

Select1.Click will activate the menu item.
