Menu CheckBox Bitmap

Im currently using the following code to toggle between different modes of operation via the menu:

    CMenu* menu = AfxGetMainWnd()->GetMenu();
    CMenu* subMenu = menu->GetSubMenu(1);

    subMenu->CheckMenuRadioItem( ID_MODE_EDIT, ID_MODE_ZOOM, ID_MODE_EDIT, MF_BYCOMMAND | MF_CHECKED );

The default bitmap for this displays a bullet point bitmap, instead of the tick\check bitmap.
Any ideas on how to achieve this without the SetMenuBitmap function again.

The event handler function is written in the doc class

Hi,
Add OnUpdate menu item for the menu you wat to tick:

void ViewClass::OnUpdateMyMenu(CCmdUI* pCmdUI)
{
// TODO: Add your command update UI handler code here
if(condition==TRUE)
pCmdUI->SetCheck(1);
else
pCmdUI->SetCheck(0);

}

Good Luck!

Hi,
Add the same OnUpdate for another Menu item and while you check first one uncheck another.

void ViewClass::OnUpdateMyMenuItem1(CCmdUI* pCmdUI)
{
// TODO: Add your command update UI handler code here
if(condition==TRUE)
pCmdUI->SetCheck(1);
else
pCmdUI->SetCheck(0);

}

void ViewClass::OnUpdateMyMenuItem2(CCmdUI* pCmdUI)
{
// TODO: Add your command update UI handler code here
if(condition==TRUE)
pCmdUI->SetCheck(0);
else
pCmdUI->SetCheck(1);

}

Good Luck!
