GetMenu function

Retrieves a handle to the menu assigned to the specified window.

Syntax


HMENU WINAPI GetMenu(
  _In_  HWND hWnd
);

Parameters

hWnd [in]

Type: HWND

A handle to the window whose menu handle is to be retrieved.

Return value

Type: HMENU

The return value is a handle to the menu. If the specified window has no menu, the return value is NULL. If the window is a child window, the return value is undefined.

Remarks

GetMenu does not work on floating menu bars. Floating menu bars are custom controls that mimic standard menus; they are not menus. To get the handle on a floating menu bar, use the Active Accessibility APIs.

For an example, see Adding Lines and Graphs to a Menu.
