You can build menus with other applications, so long as the menus are in the standard Windows resource (.RC) file format. You can import such menus directly into your project, saving you the time and effort of rebuilding menus that you created elsewhere.
To load existing .RC menu files
- In the Menu Designer, place your cursor where you want the menu to appear. The imported menu can be part of a menu you are designing, or an entire menu in itself.
- Right-click and choose Insert From Resource. The Insert Menu From Resource dialog box appears.
- In the dialog box, select the resource file you want to load, and choose OK. The menu appears in the Menu Designer window.
Note: If your resource file contains more than one menu, you first need to save each menu as a separate resource file before importing it.
