Subject: how I can do this?
Question: hello Martin ,
I found your site while I was surfing on the internet.
It is very interesting.I am trying to learn programming in visual basic but I am still amateur.I would like to ask you a question because I believe that you know.
I know how to create menus with the menu editor but I want to add icons on the options.For example in Microsoft Word on the menus the option SAVE has a icon (a diskette)on the left.
How can I do this?Is it difficult?I searched 2 books but nothing!
Thanks a lot!
