how to add subcommand and its menuitem

Hi,

I can add the custom command to the menu as follows:

IToolBarPtr pMenu;

int CommandID;

pMenu=m_pChartFX->MenuBarObj;

pMenu->AddItems (3,6);

pMenu->Visible = TRUE;

CommandID = 1;

pMenu->Commands->AddCommand(CommandID);

pMenu->Commands->Item[CommandID]->Text = "My Menu Item 1";

pMenu->Item[6]->CommandID = CommandID;

CommandID = 2;

pMenu->Commands->AddCommand(CommandID);

pMenu->Commands->Item[CommandID]->Text = "My Menu Item 2";

pMenu->Item[7]->CommandID = CommandID;

CommandID =3;

pMenu->Commands->AddCommand(CommandID);

pMenu->Commands->Item[CommandID]->Text = "My Menu Item 3";

pMenu->Item[8]->CommandID = CommandID;

Then those 3 menu items will appear from position 6 to 8.

I wonder how to add only one item(eg. My Menu) in position 6 and those three

items are added as subitem of position 6?

It should look like:

My Menu

My Menu Item 1

My Menu Item 2

My Menu Item 3

Thanks in advance,

Chek out article Q1381058, it shows you how to add "Menu" commands. Here is

the code in VB (the article is in C++):

ChartFX1.Commands.AddCommand (1)

ChartFX1.Commands.AddCommand (2)

ChartFX1.Commands.AddCommand (3)

'We are not using the default style for the first command

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).Style = CBIS_SMARTLIST

'Set the text that will be in the tooltip for each command

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).Text = "&MyCommand"

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(2).Text = "&CmdOpt1"

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(3).Text = "&CmdOpt2"

' Add and position the command on to the toolbar

ChartFX1.ToolBarObj.AddItems 1, 15

ChartFX1.ToolBarObj.Item(15).CommandID = 1

'Add and position the command on to the Background Menu

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(CFX_ID_CM_BACKGROUND).InsertSubCommands 1, 12

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(CFX_ID_CM_BACKGROUND).SubCommandID(12) = 1

' Add SubCommands to the first Command

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).InsertSubCommands 2, 0

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).SubCommandID(0) = 2

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).SubCommandID(1) = 3

I tried the code in Q1381058, but  no menu item was added to the chartfx

menu, only in toolbar and background menu. I still have several questions:

1. I got undeclared identifier error when I used CBS_NOIMAGEIFTEXT to set

the style for command item.

2. Since I'm not going to use those pre-defined chart fx command, I wonder

what is the item index of command I can use for the following code?

m_pChartFX->Commands->Item[???]->InsertSubCommands(1,12);

m_pChartFX->Commands->Item[???]->SubCommandID[12]=...;

3. How can I add and position the commands to the Menu bar instead of

Background Menu? The sample code in Q1381058 only add and position the

command on to the Background Menu. As I mentioned in previous post, I want

to add a group of menu item after help menu item in chart fx menu.

It should look like:

File Edit Tool View Gallery Help My Menu

My Menu Item 1

My Menu Item 2

My Menu Item 3

1) Make sure you add SFXBAR.DLL to your project references. VB will ask you

if you want to when you use a constant that is defined inside it like

CBIS_NOIMAGEIFTEXT.

2) The command ID is specified by you when you add it. For example:

ChartFX1.Commands.AddCommand (1)

Is adding a command with ID = 1

Like in the sample I sent you, after I add command ID = 1 I add subitems to

it:

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).InsertSubCommands 2, 0

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).SubCommandID(0) = 2

ChartFX1.Commands.Item(1).SubCommandID(1) = 3

The 1 in the Item index corresponds to the ID.

3)

In the sample, it is added to the toolbar because of these two lines:

ChartFX1.ToolBarObj.AddItems 1, 15

ChartFX1.ToolBarObj.Item(15).CommandID = 1

You can add it to the menu the same way using MenuBarObj instead of

ToolBarObj. To add it to a context menu, you have to add it as a sub-item of

the appropriate context menu (background, series, etc.).
