Hi

I need to find out if the user clicked the image on a tmenuitem.

I tried the following :

   GetMenuItemRect(TMenuItem(Sender).GetParentMenu.WindowHandle, TMenuItem(Sender).GetParentMenu.Handle, TMenuItem(Sender).MenuIndex, Rect);
//   GetMenuItemRect(Ftube.WindowHandle, TMenuItem(Sender).GetParentMenu.Handle, TMenuItem(Sender).MenuIndex, Rect);
   Windows.GetCursorPos(CPos);

but i can't find the menuitemrect relative to the screen (or anything else for that matter).

Please help!

Regards Helge

I mean how do i determine if the user clicked on the text or the icon in the menuitem. I want to do special processing if the user clicked on the icon.

You can get the handle of the submenu associated with an item by using the
GetSubMenu or GetMenuItemInfo function.
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-
GetSubMenu
( HMENU hMenu,      // handle of menu
  int nPos      // menu item position
);
~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-~-

It's not the submenu icon i'm interested in. The menu has items to the left of the text (TMenu.Imagelist, TMenuItem.ImageIndex)

The problem here is that a menu item can be executed by the keyboard, as well as with the mouse, so the component is written to be independent of the mouse position.
