Detecting mouse location over a menu...

Hello everyone,

when setting the statusBar as a simpleText -- how can I
determine the location of the mouse over the DropDown menu
options, when the user is scrolling up or down the menu?

thanks for the help.

RE: Detecting mouse location over a menu...

Windows sends the WM_MENUSELECT message when the user highlights a menu item using mouse or keyboard.

I think that you want to do that using VB. I had posted complete code regarding this in VB5/6 forum but sadly, the thread has been deleted.

However, you might be interested in seeing these articles and resources.
