Is it possible to add a completely new menu point to a pop-up menu during
runtime in Visual Basic??? This points shouldn´t appear in the same menu
but in a menu-point below. E.g:

Option Explicit

Private Sub Form_Load()
Dim i
  For i = 1 To 4
    Load Sub1(i)
    Sub1(i).Caption = "Hello" + Str$(i)
  Next
End Sub

Private Sub Form_MouseUp(Button As Integer, Shift As Integer, X As Single, Y As Single)
  If Button = 2 Then
    If Shift = 2 Then  'Ctrl
      PopupMenu Menu
    Else
      PopupMenu Menu1
    End If
  End If
End Sub
 

This is not what i want the menu to do. This code doesn´t create a new
menu-point. I don´t know if it is possible do crack this nut in VB.....
Please give me an answere.

If Sub1(0) is a submenu of Menu or Menu1, it should work fine.  Not sure what you mean by "menu-point."

Menu1 'Main level
 - Sub1(0) ' Sub menu item

Then the code works fine.

Well, If its to add items to the menu, use the api call here,
Declare Function InsertMenuItem& Lib "user32" Alias "InsertMenuItemA" (ByVal _
hMenu As Long, ByVal un As Long, ByVal bypos As Long, lpcMenuItemInfo As _
MENUITEMINFO)

The parameters are described as follows:
hMenu      Long—Handle of a menu.
un      Long—The menu ID or position of a menu entry. The new entry is inserted before the item specified by this parameter.
bypos      Long—True if un specifies the position of the entry, False if it is a menu ID.
lpMenuItemInfo      MENUITEMINFO—A MENUITEMINFO structure to use to set the characteristics of the specified menu entry.
