Dear Support,

In order for a button to have a drop-down menu, I see that I need to use the MFC’s CMenu. Is there any way to use CExtPopupMenu object instead?

Please create and use a CExtButtonderived class. Your class should implement the CExtButton::_IsMenuAvail() and CExtButton::_OnTrackPopup() virtual methods. The CExtButton::_IsMenuAvail() virtual methods returns a flag indicating whether your button displays a popup menu. Your method should return true. The CExtButton::_OnTrackPopup() virtual method should create and display a popup menu. You can use the source code of the original method as a sample.
