How can I change a menu or submenus caption at runtime?

I have a submenu items "N = 10", "Cut N", "paste N"
my problem is :
when user right click on submenu item "N = 10" it popup a dialog box like

---------------------------------------------
|   change the value of N : <edit box> |
|             <ok>        <cancle>            |
---------------------------------------------
if you enter 50 then it change the submenu caption "N = 50"

so, How can I change a submenus caption by code at runtime?

If you know its ID
      submenu->RemoveMenu(nCMD, MF_BYCOMMAND);
      submenu->InsertMenu(pos, MF_BYPOSITION, ID_CLOSEFILE, "N=50");


Or
   int pos = FindMenuItem(submenu, "N=10");
   if (pos > -1)
   {
      submenu->RemoveMenu(pos, MF_BYPOSITION);
      submenu->InsertMenu(pos, MF_BYPOSITION, ID_CLOSEFILE, "N=50");
   }

int FindMenuItem(CMenu* Menu, LPCTSTR MenuString)
{
   ASSERT(Menu);
   ASSERT(::IsMenu(Menu->GetSafeHmenu()));

   int count = Menu->GetMenuItemCount();
   for (int i = 0; i < count; i++)
   {
      CString str;
      if (Menu->GetMenuString(i, str, MF_BYPOSITION) &&
         (strcmp(str, MenuString) == 0))
         return i;
   }

   return -1;
}


Good Luck

You could also override the OnUpdateCmdUI handler for the menu item, then change the text accordingly. So, say for example you store the value of N in a string variable m_strN, you would add the following code to the handler :

pCmdUI->SetText("N=" + m_strN);

Hope this helps
