This function creates a menu. The menu is initially empty, but it can be filled with menu items by using the AppendMenu and InsertMenu functions.




Return Values

The handle to the newly created menu indicates success. NULL indicates failure. To get extended error information, call GetLastError.


To add submenus to a menu bar, use the CreatePopupMenu function.

Resources associated with a menu that is assigned to a window are freed automatically. If the menu is not assigned to a window, an application must free system resources associated with the menu before closing. An application frees menu resources by calling the DestroyMenu function.
