I want to insert an executable in my application as a submenu item from the main menu bar. What code is necessary to do this?
This is what I know so far:
In the 'Docked Window' under the 'Rescource' tab and the subfolder marked 'Menu' are two IDR objects. One is the default IDR_MAINFRAME, the other is the IDR_PROJECTNAME.
If the project IDR is selected, the current available menu items are displayed in the workspace. From here on, I need help. What steps make it possible to launch an exe from the menu item I select?
I'm guessing that I should select the menu item in which the exe should appear as a submenu item. Then, from that dropdown list, select the blank box listed as the last submenu item, choose properties, select an 'ID:' from the dropdown box, type in a caption in the Caption Box. Even if I'm correct in these steps, I'm sure some code needs to be inserted somewhere.
This is where I need help, can you help me with these steps?
