GetContextMenuItemCount Method
Windows - Visual C++

The GetContextMenuItemCount method returns the number of menu items in the specified context menu.

short count = GetContextMenuItemCount(short menuID);

The GetContextMenuItemCount syntax has these parts:




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


Return value. A short integer containing the number of items in the context menu.

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.
