Submenu items do not appear after I iterate through them

Hi there,

I'm trying to make my program update the text of all my menu items dynamically.  I have subclassed CMenu because I need to control the font and colour of the menu items; I followed the method here:

http://www.codeguru.com/Cpp/controls/menu/article.php/c3721

I have the following two functions:

void CMainFrame::updateMenuTexts() {
    CMenu *pMenu = pMyMenu;
    for (int i = 0; i < pMenu->GetMenuItemCount(); i++)      {
        CMenu* subMenu = pMenu->GetSubMenu(i);
        for (int j = 0; j < subMenu->GetMenuItemCount(); j++) {
            UINT id = subMenu->GetMenuItemID(j);
            updateMenuText(subMenu, i, id);
        }
        updateMenuText(pMenu, i, POPUP);
    }

    HMENU hMenu = ::GetMenu(GetSafeHwnd());
    pMyMenu->Detach();
    pMyMenu->Attach(hMenu);
    SetMenu(pMyMenu);
}

void CMainFrame::updateMenuText(CMenu* pMenu, int position, int id) {
    EyeSpeakMenu* menu = (EyeSpeakMenu*)pMenu;
    if (id == POPUP) {
        VERIFY(menu->ModifyMenu(position, MF_BYPOSITION | MF_STRING | MF_POPUP, NULL,
            getMenuText(position, POPUP)));
    } else {
        VERIFY(menu->ModifyMenu(id, MF_BYPOSITION | MF_STRING, id,
            getMenuText(position, id)));
    }
}

The getMenuText function returns the text I want for the menu item; this works fine.

The problem is that once I have called this function, only the top-level menu items appear; when you click on them it seems like they have no submenu.  Why could this be?

Thank you for your help.

CMenu::ModifyMenu

nIDNewItem
Specifies either the command ID of the modified menu item or, if nFlags is set to MF_POPUP, the menu handle (HMENU) of a pop-up menu.

You pass NULL in nIDNewItem. This removes submenus from it.

Other way: in my program I modify popup menu without using of MF_POPUP flag, and it works:

pMenu->ModifyMenu(pos, MF_BYPOSITION | MF_STRING,  0, s);

pMenu - parent menu.
pos - position of popup menu in the parent menu.
