Retrieves a pointer to the menu for this window.

CMenu* GetMenu( ) const;

Return Value

Identifies the menu. The value is NULL if CWnd has no menu. The return value is undefined if CWnd is a child window.

The returned pointer may be temporary and should not be stored for later use.


This function should not be used for child windows because they do not have a menu.


void CMainFrame::OnCwndDeletefilemenu()
   // This example deletes the leftmost popup menu or leftmost 
   // popup menu item from the application's main window.
   CWnd* pMain = AfxGetMainWnd();

   // The main window _can_ be NULL, so this code 
   // doesn't ASSERT and actually tests. 
   if (pMain != NULL)
      // Get the main window's menu
      CMenu* pMenu = pMain->GetMenu();

      // If there is a menu and it has items, we'll 
      // delete the first one. 
      if (pMenu != NULL && pMenu->GetMenuItemCount() > 0)
         pMenu->DeleteMenu(0, MF_BYPOSITION);
         // force a redraw of the menu bar

      // No need to delete pMenu because it is an MFC 
      // temporary object.
