Hi
Could somebody tell is it possible to draw on the main menu. I have an Image component on the main form and I'd like to draw (copy) the picture in the Image to the right side on the main menu.

well, i must guess now,
no delphi on hand and no d6 available to me

there should be a ownerdraw-property, if so, set it to true
then there should be events OnDrawItem or OnDrawItemImage, which are providing a canvas and a rect, to which you can copy your image.

this is just from head and i may wrong, maybe this property/event must be adjusted to the menu-component, where the menuitem is assigned to

meikl ;-)

There's a problem with OwnerDraw property. When it's TRUE and ShortCut was chosen for some menu item then menuitem's caption laps partly the ShortCut name.

Let me give this a try...

Create a new form
Add A MainMenu component
Add some menu items.
Select a bitmap for the MainMenu properties
Add an imagelist and add some images to the list
Now select imageindex in the main menu properties and select an image for each subindex item on the main menu.

2 gemarti:
I wanted to draw not in the area of MenuItem
For example the menu width equal the width of the window it belongs. As usual the last menu item (i mean main menu item, not popup items) don't reach the right size of menu bar. I'd like to draw on the empty part of menu bar.

Nevertheless I've solved this problem using some kretzschmar's ideas. The example suggested by mnasman discribe the same way, but kretzschmar was the first :)
