I agree that it is a bug in the way that main menus are merged. Dropping of icon in win7 sucks. However, ownerdrawing it worked. In XP, there is more of an issue. I am trying to find out what it is doing to try to make something that will work for all my projects. Something that I can just drop in and set indexes to an image list..Ya I know alpha is FUBAR, but it works pretty good for icons. I may try to figure out a better imagelist some day.
