sorry, think you cannot do it with Delphi standard components

You should be familiar with windows API, to do this.

Hello

  I found what i told you, it's called TMenuToolBar, you can download it from torry.net

  add the MenuToolBar in ur project and set it's property autosize to false, align property to alNone, and autosize to false, then set the top property to 10 or as you want, when u r run ur progam you will find ur menu as down about 10
if you need sample application and the component, email me at nasman@mogaza.org

I looked for some API messages or styles to change the windows OS created menu. It seems that they wanted the menu to be "Standardized" in it's look and placement, to be "familiar" to many users. I don't remember anything about changeing the location of the menu. . . if you could do this I'm sure you'd see menus on the left, right or 10 pixels down, in alot of programs. You can build a menu bar from the parts (toolbar with buttons, dropdown lists, ect) and place it where you want or use a component that looks like a menu bar.

It would be nice to place the menu in a toolbar, and actualy I did this a couple of times, but the problem is that I'm using MDI windows and when maximizing a MDI child the child window menu and the minimize, restore and close buttons have to come up in the menu. When simulating it with a toolbar there isn't a way (as far as I know)to show these child window features in the toolbar.
