Changes the displayed text for the specified menu item.

void _SetItemText(MENUID menuid, ITEMID itemid, char FAR *text)
MENUID menuid;            /* Menu identifier. */
ITEMID itemid;            /* Menu item identifier. */
char FAR *text;            /* Text. */


The menu item can be either a menu title or a bar.

For more information on how to create an API library and integrate it with Visual FoxPro, see Accessing the Visual FoxPro API.


The following example builds a menu with three items. It then changes the item text using _SetItemText(В ).
