Hello experts:

Id like to create a vb menu using code.  The data elements would be pulled from a database table.  I'm very comfortable with ado connectivity, just don't know how to create the menu.

Could anyone provide an example?

Thanks

not sure whether it works on menu, but i used this for labels, list, etc.

Create the Menu as control array from the interface.
(one menu item is enough)
when you need to create a new one, just load it.
eg.
assuming the one created in the interface is has Index = 0

IndexCtr = IndexCtr + 1
Load mnuItem(IndexCtr)
mnuItem(IndexCtr).Visible = True

So I have to create at least one entry using the Menu Editor in order to use code?  And the initial entry I create should initiate the control array?

So lets say i want to create a menu called Reports.  I create the Heading (Reports), then create the first entry under Reports?

Yes, you should use the Menu Editor to at least at an initiate control array menu.

First, create a Menu Parent for the control array menu, let say mMenu. Then under this mMenu, add an initiate control array menu by naming it as mReports, set its Index Property to 0 to indicate it's a member of Reports.

Then populate the mReports as get the elements from database. And at last, popup the menu to show the mReports by using PopupMenu mMenu.
