Here is some code that will add the bitmaps to your menu.

 Dim i%
  Dim hMenu, hSubMenu, menuID, x
  hMenu = GetMenu(hwnd)
  hSubMenu = GetSubMenu(hMenu, 0) '1 for "Other" menu etcetera
  For i = 1 To 4
    menuID = GetMenuItemID(hSubMenu, i - 1)
    x = SetMenuItemBitmaps(hMenu, menuID, &H4, img.ListImages(i).Picture, img.ListImages(i).Picture)
  Next
  menuID = GetMenuItemID(hSubMenu, 5)
  x = SetMenuItemBitmaps(hMenu, menuID, 0, img.ListImages(5).Picture, 0&)

 x = SetMenuItemBitmaps(hMenu, menuID, &H4, img.ListImages(i).Picture, img.ListImages(i).Picture)

seems to be returning 0?

I cut your code out to see if it would work so it is exactly as above!

Sorry,

  It does work here also, I had ICONS in the ImageList instead of Bitmaps.
