I am trying to add an item to a popup menu that is not selectable, I want it to be like a title.

I can bold it, and make it disabled, but the "look" of the disabled item is not good to be a title.


    CExtPopupMenuWnd *menu1 = new CExtPopupMenuWnd();

    VERIFY( menu1->CreatePopupMenu( GetSafeHwnd() ) );

    UINT nResultCmdID = 0;




    int nIndex = menu1->ItemFindPosForCmdID( RAYONTREECTRL_MENU_CMD_TITLE );

    if( nIndex >= 0 )


        CExtPopupMenuWnd::MENUITEMDATA & _mii = menu1->ItemGetInfo( nIndex );

        _mii.Enable( false );



Best Regards

Please run the ProfUIS_Controls sample application, select the Popup Menus dialog page and invoke context menu over this page via right mouse button click. The first level of displayed context menu contains menu item like you need. Menu item repainting is implemented in the CPagePopupMenus::OnDrawPopupMenuItem() method which handles the CExtPopupMenuWnd::g_nMsgPopupDrawItem registered message.
