I’m trying to insert a common control like CExtButton or CExtEdit, etc.. inside the "chevron menu" in a toolbar.

With a BarButton, when it is not visible, if I use the "chevon button" I can see it like in the toolbar !

For a common control (button, edit, label, combo, check,etc....), I see only a white space (like a white button....).

How can I change this "white space" with the correct control ?

I know perfectly that the BarButton items don’t have any problem, but I must use also the common control in my application !!!

Thank you !!!

The standard menu items are looking like buttons in the chevron menu because this menu uses toolbar like layout of menu items. The editors and combo boxes cannot be inserted into menus because these controls require focus. Menu window and its children windows should never become focused. The customizable toolbars and menus are supporting built-in text and combo fields. You can see them in the StyleEditor sample application. These built-in text/combo fields are supported by both toolbars and menus.
