max menu length

I have a dynamic menu control array which may get to be very long.  I'd like to use arrow keys to continue to scroll the menu.  If there's a way to do this, can I get snippet code?
Thanks.

The VB menu system does not support scrolling... What you can do is add a "More..." menu item and then put the extra items under there...

If my menu list reaches, lets say 25 items, and I want to list more, I would not want to list the additional items under the "MORE..." because there's not enough room on the screen.  Can you clarify your answer if possible, I may be misunderstanding your answer?

By the way, I had already tried a "MORE..." item, but after the click event is done, the list doesn't stay displayed.  I have to click the first level menu item to obtain the rest of the list.  Is there any other way around this?

Thanks again.

The way most programs handle a "More..." entry in a menu is they actually open a window that has a list of all of the possible selections...

For example, lets say I have 100 items that are possible in a menu... I display the first 20 or so, and display "More..." as the last menu item.

When the user clicks "More..." a new form is displayed with a listbox that contains all of the items...


Cheers!
