Re: Menu IDs
I tend to use numbers like this:
#define NEW_MENU_START (WM_APP + 600)
#define OPEN_MENU_START (WM_APP + 700)
But I don't think there is a lot of precedent so long as you don't get a
conflict with IDs. Otherwise you'll either have a handler handling your
message or you'll get one of someone else's :o)

As I'm doing this more and more, I thought I'd ask.
There should be something fundamentally wrong with using menu IDs down in
the tens. I don't know just how wrong it is but so far it has worked
flawlessly. For instance:
#define ID_FIRSTCH_SECTION 10
#define ID_LASTCH_SECTION 40
ON_COMMAND_RANGE( ID_FIRSTCH_SECTION, ID_LASTCH_SECTION, OnSections )
ON_UPDATE_COMMAND_UI_RANGE( ID_FIRSTCH_SECTION, ID_LASTCH_SECTION,
Because I dynamically add stuff to a menu. It may be none or several.
Should I like be chunking my_reserved ids above WM_USER?
I've had two occasions in the last week that I would use dynamic menus. I
want to get this straight before I go too far. I did notice that while
working tonight I was getting the menu stuff in for a flyout, didn't have
the handler yet, and an ID of one made my explorer view hang for a few
seconds and display a can't find.
But like I said, I _seem_ to have been getting away with what I'm doing.
