    Context menu creation

    I would like to create a context menu,Its look something like this
    HTML Code:
    Delete ->Rung    ->Start 
                      ->End 
            ->Element 
    Exit
    my code is
    Code:
    case WM_RBUTTONDOWN :				//Right click option
    {
    	MENUITEMINFO mi1,mi2={0};
    	HMENU hPopupMenu = CreatePopupMenu();
    	HMENU hSubMenu1 = CreatePopupMenu();
    	HMENU hSubMenu2 = CreatePopupMenu();
    	
    	InsertMenu(hPopupMenu,0,MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING,ID_EDIT_EXTEND,_T("Exit"));
    	
    	mi1.cbSize=sizeof(MENUITEMINFO);
    	mi1.fMask=MIIM_SUBMENU|MIIM_STRING|MIIM_ID;
    	mi1.wID=ID_EDIT_DELETE;
    	mi1.hSubMenu=hSubMenu1;
    	mi1.dwTypeData=_T("Delete");
    	InsertMenu(hSubMenu1,0,MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING,ID_DELETE_ELEMENT,_T("Element"));
    	InsertMenu(hSubMenu1,0,MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING,ID_DELETE_RUNG,_T("Rung"));
    	
    	mi2.cbSize=sizeof(MENUITEMINFO);
    	mi2.fMask=MIIM_SUBMENU|MIIM_STRING|MIIM_ID;
    	mi2.wID=ID_DELETE_RUNG;
    	mi2.hSubMenu=hSubMenu2;
    	mi2.dwTypeData=_T("Rung");
    	InsertMenu(hSubMenu2,0,MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING,ID_DELETE_START,_T("Start"));
    	InsertMenu(hSubMenu2,0,MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING,ID_DELETE_END,_T("End"));
    	
    	
    	InsertMenuItem(hSubMenu1,0,false,&mi2);
    	InsertMenuItem(hPopupMenu,0,false,&mi1);
    
    	SetForegroundWindow(hWnd);
    	GetCursorPos(&ptClient);
    	TrackPopupMenuEx(hPopupMenu,0,ptClient.x,ptClient.y,hWnd,NULL);
    
    	
    }
    But i am getting Output Like this
    HTML Code:
    Delete ->Rung              
              ->Element 
              ->Rung ->Start 
                     ->End 
    Exit

    The item "Rung" is popup menu. so it needs flag MF_POPUP and a menu handle rather than a menu item ID to be passed in the InsertItem... call
