This sample illustrates adding menu items to a menu at run time.

The menu definition in this sample is defined in the Menu Designer, with a single prompt and an empty submenu named empty_pop.

Code is included to be executed when a user chooses any item in the menu.

В Copy Code
PROCEDURE takeaction(cPrompt)
#DEFINE MSG_LOC "You chose " + cPrompt + "." 

IF cPrompt = "Release this menu"
   RELEASE PAD dynmenu of _MSYSMENU
ELSE
   WAIT WINDOW MSG_LOC TIMEOUT 1
ENDIF

The code associated with the Click event of cmdRefresh on the form runs the menu.

В Copy Code
DO dynamic.mpr

Then, for each item in the list, the code defines a menu item with the prompt and message text.

В Copy Code
FOR i = 1 TO THISFORM.lstMenu.ListCount
   DEFINE BAR i OF empty_pop PROMPT (ALLTRIM(THISFORM.lstMenu.List(i,1))) ;
      MESSAGE (THISFORM.lstMenu.List(i,2))
ENDFOR

There is also code to provide the prompt to make it possible for a user to release the menu.

В Copy Code
DEFINE BAR i + 1 OF empty_pop PROMPT "\-"
DEFINE BAR i + 2 OF empty_pop PROMPT "Release this menu" ;
   MESSAGE "Remove the Dynamic Items menu from the menu bar."
