Thanks,but this isn't exactly what i want.
I want that this icons can be  pressed or unpressed
It's mean not only a picture but like an object with states :pressed ,unpressed (like in toolbar).

Is this possible?

I am not sure that you can acheive this. maybe you will need to provide yourself multiples icons .

Just a penny...

stock somewhere the state of the menu items

you could then subclass the object containing the menu

catch the creation of the menu with
WM_INITMENU or WM_INITPOPUPMENU (not sure but you can search in the api viewer)

then
SetMenuItemBitmap
to change the bitmap for check in the menu
or
ModifyMenu
to set a bitmap instead of the normal caption
you put the bitmap in the menu

use two different bitmap for pressed or unpressed
if you need only the checkbox different use the first


then
catch the click of the mouse on the menu
(use WM_ACTIVATE)

with the mouse position use
MenuItemFromPoint API
to determine which menu entry contains the specific point
or
WM_MENUSELECT to know the menu item

remember to unsubclass the object at the end of the process or at the exit of the program

Hope this will help
