WM_MEASUREITEM and Owner Draw Menu

I am creating a control that pops up a menu when the user clicks on it. One of the properties for the control is MenuFont which sets the font for the menu items. When calling TrackPopupMenu for the first time, WM_MEASUREITEM is sent and the width and height of the menu items are calculated correctly according to the font. If the user selects a different font and call TrackPopupMenu again, then WM_MEASUREITEM is not sent again and the width and height of the menu items are incorrect. How can I force OnMeasureItem to be called everytime the menu pops up. Thanks.

Do you create popup menu only once and call TrackPopupMenu for each right-click? Try to create the menu on every right-click. In any case, show your code.
