Go Up to Creating and Managing Menus
For MDI applications, such as the text editor sample application, and for OLE client applications, the main menu of your application needs to be able to receive menu items either from another form or from the OLE server object. This is often called merging menus. Note that OLE technology is limited to Windows applications only.
You prepare menus for merging by specifying values for two properties:
- Menu, a property of the form
- GroupIndex, a property of menu items in the menu
- Specifying the Active Menu: Menu Property
- Determining the Order of Merged Menu Items: GroupIndex Property
