How to replace the image of the up arrow key in in main menu?
When the items in a menu are large and is not able to fit in a screen normally we can find two arrows on the top and bottom of the screen. I want to replace this arrow image with a new one in some OnPaint event.
Is there any API to get this image? I tried using GetMenuItemInfo with MIIM_BITMAP; it did not work.

You need to create custom menu from CMenu.This links may help you.

Wednesday, August 01, 2012 6:25 AMNo, I'm not using any ribbon menu. I'm using standard OS menu. When the number of menu items are more and cannot fit in the monitor, it displays additional arrow on top and bottom of the menu. I'm talking about this arrow in menu only.

I think that is the system behavior, you cannot change it.
Why put many menu items into only one menu? you can use sub-menu or place them into different menu bars.
