     This code shows how to use many API functions in "menu" category (see the screen shot!). Viewing this code you can learn how to disable close (x) button on title bar, how to edit system menu (minimize, maximize, close, etc.) of specified window, how to remove items from menu, add small bitmaps next to the text in menu items, get handle to system menu, menu of window and submenu, add as big bitmap as you want to menu item, hide menu on command and count menu items. It also shows how to use window procedure (called by AddressOf), how to hide your application and add icon to taskbar status area and how to open internet pages without using any controls. UPDATED: now you can add to menu also icons!

Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.
  3. Scan the source code with Minnow's Project Scanner

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net
