Objective:
My app can have multiple dsn's which I store in an Oracle table. I want to have a menu (Databases)that when clicked it looks something like this:
   DATABASES
      (DSN NAME) -> tables -> (list tables for that DSN)
                             -> stored procedures -> (list sp's)

      (DSN NAME) -> tables -> (list tables for that DSN)
                             -> stored procedures -> (list sp's)

can anyone give me an example in code (not using API's) on how to do this at runtime based on the DSN's I have listed in my table?

Environ: VB6 (sp5) , NT4 WKST, ADO 2.6

Thanks.

To do dynamic menus, use menu arrays. Create one base menu item with index 0. Then do load basemenuname(1) to create a new menu. You can then set the attributes of this menu item. Load addiitonal menu items as needed.
