RE: menu

Yes, please be more specific, are you running a GUI?
If your in Builder's GUI then you just find a Menu Component
on the Component bar and drop it on your form.
Double Clicking on it brings up the Editor which has several re-fab menu templates to choose from or you can build your own.

RE: menu

you could be doing an advanced text editor (word), or a simple one (notepad), what kind of options do you want? and did you want the coding to go along with those options?

RE: menu

ok... well tigerclaw. if your looking to make a text editor in DOS, first of all, why?! second of all, i think theres a better forum that you could find. Are you looking to make this through console? And are you using BCB?

i am using turbo C++ version 1.01 from borland

RE: menu

May be u could use GNU C available from http://www.gnu.org/software/gcc/gcc.html for the project u r involved in.  This should work on DOS also.

Turbo c++(1.01) has been placed in the archives by Borland and can be downloaded from http://community.borland.com

In case U want to make a editor for learning, try to make it on LINUX platform, bcos fro DOS there are a large number of editors available both freeware and shareware.
