AppendContextMenuSeparator Method
Windows - Visual C++

The AppendContextMenuSeparator method appends a separator item to the control's context menu.

long result = AppendContextMenuSeparator(short menuID);

The AppendContextMenuSeparator syntax has these parts:




A short integer containing the menu ID of the menu to address as described in Remarks.


A long integer containing 0 if successful and an error code if not.

The context menu is the menu that appears when you right click on the control. It can be turned on or off by setting the ContextMenuEnabled property. The context menu is initially empty; you add your preferred menu items to it using the ContextMenuItem methods.

The menuID parameter is used to indicate whether to address the main context menu or a submenu. The menuID of the main context menu is always 0. The menuID of a submenu is returned when the submenu is created with AppendContextMenuSubmenu or InsertContextMenuSubmenu. Note that this menuID has no relation to any ID used by the Windows API.
