    How to show File menu

    Hello,
    I have an MDI application using different menus depending on the current document template in use.

    I need to show the top-level File Menu from the IDR_MAINFRAME window when a command is sent from the active document.

    I would like to application to deactivate the active child window and then show the File menu as if the alt-F key was pressed from the keyboard.

    I have tried CMenu *pMenu=AfxGetMainWnd()->GetMenu();
    but this does not display the menu at all.

    Thanks...

    Maybe you'll just use SendInput to send alt-F keys?

    Of course it doesn't. GetMenu just returns menu object to let you start working with the one. To show its Files submenu you need to call GetSubMenu (File menu has 0 index) and then TrackPopupMenu for the obtained submenu object.
