pulling down a menu programmatically
Posted on 1998-11-04
Is there a way in VB5 to programmatically cause a menu to pull down (as if the user has clicked it)? This would be helpful in giving the user some guidance on where to go next in the program (instead of just text to tell, this would show the next step)?
I can use the HiLiteMenuItem API call to highlight the menu, but it would be more dramatic to show it pulled down. Also, that API call only seems to work with top level menus. What I would really like is to be able to pull down the top level and highlight the menu item they should click, so they learn by seeing it done.
