I am trying to measure the width and height of my Popup
menu. I am trying the following code, but with no success.
It does not give me an error but the values of Width
and Height are wrong.

void CPopUpMenuView::OnContextMenu(CWnd* pWnd, CPoint point)
{
      // TODO: Add your message handler code here
      CMenu menu;
      menu.LoadMenu(IDR_MENU1);
      menu.GetSubMenu(0)->TrackPopupMenu(TPM_LEFTALIGN|
            TPM_RIGHTBUTTON, point.x, point.y, this);

      MEASUREITEMSTRUCT lpMeasureItemStruct;
      menu.MeasureItem(&lpMeasureItemStruct );
      UINT Width = lpMeasureItemStruct.itemWidth;
      UINT Height = lpMeasureItemStruct.itemHeight;
}
Any ideas?

you can caculate the with from the string width,
and get the height from the system metrics.

Called by the framework when a menu with the owner-draw style is created. By default, this member function does nothing. Override this member function and fill in the MEASUREITEMSTRUCT structure to inform Windows of the menu's dimensions.

Thanks for your answer wyy_cq, but I need a little more guidence than you've provided. You state: "you can caculate the width from the string width, and get the height from the system metrics.". How do I calculate the string width of the Popup menu and can you give me more info on using the system metrics. Thanks
