I want to get the name of a menu item using the windows menu API. At the moment I can get the menu text/caption, but not its actual name e.g. mnuMenu.

Hi JohnLawrence,

I don't think you can. The API methods do not relate to the name you give it at design time. You would have to check perhaps the hWnd or something of that sort.

mnuMenu names are VB only beasts. This is nothing more then a key for VB menu items collection.
