hi,
you use setmenuitembitmaps() .for an example open delphi ContMenu example in demos\activeX\shellext folder.
drop a image into the folder (help.bmp).
in delphi add "graphics" to the uses section of contextM.pas and change the TContextMenu.QueryContextMenu function to look like this:

function TContextMenu.QueryContextMenu(Menu: HMENU; indexMenu, idCmdFirst,
          idCmdLast, uFlags: UINT): HResult;
     var
     bmp : tpicture;
          begin
  Result := 0; // or use MakeResult(SEVERITY_SUCCESS, FACILITY_NULL, 0);

  if ((uFlags and $0000000F) = CMF_NORMAL) or
     ((uFlags and CMF_EXPLORE) <> 0) then begin
    // Add one menu item to context menu
    InsertMenu(Menu, indexMenu, MF_STRING or MF_BYPOSITION, idCmdFirst,
      'Compile...');
  bmp:=tpicture.create;
  bmp.LoadFromFile('help.bmp');
  SetMenuItemBitmaps(Menu,indexMenu,MF_BYPOSITION,bmp.Bitmap.handle,bmp.bitmap.handle);
    // Return number of menu items added
    Result := 1; // or use MakeResult(SEVERITY_SUCCESS, FACILITY_NULL, 1)
  end;
end;


now compile build and register and right click a dpr file in explorer and see our icon on the menu :-)

Regards Barry
