SetContextMenuItemChecked Method
Windows - Visual C++

The SetContextMenuItemChecked method sets the checked status of the specified menu item in the context menu.

void SetContextMenuItemChecked(short menuID, short position, BOOL checked);

The SetContextMenuItemChecked syntax has these parts:




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


The position of the menu item in the menu. The position is one-based.


A Boolean value indicating whether or not the menu item should not be checked.

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.
