I need to know how to repaint a menu once it is already popped up. The objective is to be able to animate menu items.

If you just want the picture to change, then there is nothing you need do.

For example:
procedure TForm1.Timer1Timer(Sender: TObject);
begin
      TestMenuItem.ImageIndex := Random(4);
end;

With the menu popped up, this changes the image every second and works perfectly. Is there something else you wanted to do? Maybe call UpdateItems (TMenu).
