Change Menu Pulldown string?

Hi.
I want to change the strings in a menu programatically.
I have a menu resource that gets loaded by my CFrameWnd.
I figured out how to alter the items in the menu:

* override ::OnCreate() in CFrameWnd
* GetMenu()->ModifyMenu(id,MF_BYCOMMAND|MF_STRING,id,"newstring");

However I do not know how to change the string in the pulldown itself.
(ie: File, Edit, Help, etc)

Does anybody know how to do this?

Thanks.

I think you wnat to modify the text in the menubar.  If so, you need to use positions rather that commands.  For instance, this changes the title of the seconf menu item (usually "&Edit") to "&Whaz UP!"

  GetMenu()->ModifyMenu( 1, MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING, 2, "&Whaz UP!" );
