Hi Mike2000,

I don't understand.

>'but i want it also can returns when i click the item which contains a submenu'

Indeed .. what is the point of a submenu if the popup returns (and so disappears) when you click on that item.

Only thing I can think that you are trying to do is to have an item on the menu that LOOKS like a submenu, and when you click on it, you (say) generate the submenu andpop it up.

In this case, if you want to make a menu LOOK like it is a submenu, then you'll want to owner-draw your menu so that you draw the little triangle that indicates a submenu.  When first popped up, you'd make the pseudo-submenu itme a regular menu item with a command id.  When the user clicks on it, do whatever work you want, set that item to be a real submenu item and redisplay the menu.  Even this would probably be a bit 'clunky' nd ugly, but is all I can think of for you.

This would be tricky, because

Hi Mike2000,

if that (what RONSLOW sayd) is what you want then you can simply create an empty popup menu and handle the WM_INITMENUPOPUP message to dynamically create items for the popup menu.

changing default behaviour like that is a bad idea .. it confuses the user.

How do you expect to click on it without hovering over it (unless you are really quick).

And clicking on a submenu item should pop up the submenu anyway, so your users are going to wonder what on earth is going on.

I'd reconsider my design / requirements if I were you.

I've got your code to compile and link.

I use <iostream> instead or <iostream.h>

AND I included "using namespace std;" in each .h file (after the #include of iostream, iomanip etc).

All works fine.

The problem was that you had both the std:ostream and ostream defined, and the compiler didn't know which one you meant.  Consistent usage of the namespace in the header files, and the use of <iostream> instead or <iostream.h> fixes all that.

Can I submit this as an aswer please???
