I have been working in C++ Console applications (VC++ editor). Now, I
wish to customize my context menus using c++.
Basically, I need to create a separator in the Right Click Context
menus and a new menu item with some sub menu items in the context
Actually, while right click a File/Folder by default some menu options
will be listed (Say, Explore, Open, Send To,...). I would like to add
another option separated with a line separator. Is it possible to do
it by using C++ application. If so, please update me a sample source
I tried to add it manually via registry by adding a new key in
'HKEY_CLASSES_ROOT\Folder\shell'. This list my new option in the menu.
But I am not sure how to add a line separator there.
Not sure, whether I need to use MFC to accomplish my requirement.
Could any one update me a sample source code to accomplish my
requirement with C++. For ex, while right click a folder, a menu named
'Testing' should be available. And the menu 'Testing' has 2 sub menus
'Test1' and 'Test2', some think like that.
Also I need to add a overlay image for a particular folder. Is it
possible with C++. If possible, pls let me know the sample source
If not, please update me is there any other registry change to
accomplish my requirements.
Thanks in Advance,
