How to disable "Move" system menu item

I found:  in the window's system menu, the "Move" menu item can not be disable by the following code:

CMenu *pSysMenu = this->GetSystemMenu(FALSE);
if ( pSysMenu != NULL )
   pSysMenu->EnableMenuItem( SC_MOVE, MF_GRAYED );

The "Move" menu item is still enabled when system menu pops;

And the "Close" menu item is no problem!

Why?

Hi!


use:

pSysMenu->EnableMenuItem( SC_MOVE, MF_DISABLE );

instead.

Hi again!

sorry but I misspelled, it should be:

pSysMenu->EnableMenuItem( SC_MOVE, MF_DISABLED );

Thank you!
But in my application, it still doesn't works by replacing your code.

Only the
pSysMenu->ModifyMenu(SC_MOVE, MF_GRAYED | MF_BYCOMMAND, 0, "&Move"); calling works;

I don't know why?

Thanks for your helps!

Hi loqqy_yyi,
I can't give you an exactly reason because i couldn't find document for this issue.
I can only say my opinion is: SC_MOVE was processed by VC to control position of window's frame (->we can do with SC_CLOSE) so we can't do that with EnableMenuItem. I just use ModifyMenu to change SC_MOVE to 0 so it can't be handled anymore.
