The latest release of KetilO's resource editor is able to handle menus.

You have to create a menu first, from the project menu select Create New/ menu and you will be prompted for a filename. Give the menu a name and the menu editor will be opened, when you want to modify it just double click on it's entry in the project browser. For more info see the help file.

Hi AceEmbler

Unfortunatly the most interesting file was missing from your upload so I am just guessing here.

Open Adresiki.rc

You probably find:

#include <Res\AdresikiDlg.rc>
#include <Res\AdresikiMnu.rc>

The problem is that the menu has both an ID and a name and since the resource compiler is not able to find the ID associated with the menu name, only the name will be used.

Change it to:

#include <Res\AdresikiMnu.rc>
#include <Res\AdresikiDlg.rc>

The problem will be solved in the next release of RadASM.

You were right but i have got another problem.

Hi AceEmbler

A popup cannot have a shortcut. Makes sense since it cannot have an ID.

Hi AceEmbler

I can only advice you to read a little about resource scripts. I think there is a help file that came with masm32.

Actually, if you define menus using MENUEX instead of MENU, your can get popups with IDs. You can also set their IDs on runtime using the APIs. However I've never tried shortcuts on them (other than the ampersand before a character) so I wouldn't know if it's possible.

The correct term is that a menu bar item cannot have a tab character (used to align columns in a popup menu).

From rc.hlp

The string can contain the escape characters \t and \a. The \t character inserts a tab in the string and is used to align text in columns. Tab characters should be used only in pop-up menus, not in menu bars. (For information on pop-up menus, see the POPUP statement.) The \a character aligns all text that follows it flush right to the menu bar or pop-up menu.

Cool. :)
Misc question: \t was the tab character (ASCII 09)... but I can't remember what was the ASCII for \a. :(

\a (BELL) => 07
