|Right justifying menu items is a little used and know feature of Windows.
Most applications that take advantage of this feature use it to place the Help menu on the
far right side of the menu bar.
In recent years this options seems to have fallen from
grace with 99% of applications using the now more standard last menu item as the help
Anyway if you want to use this feature you need to add the ASCII character 8 as the
first character of the menu item. PowerBuilder does not allow ASCII characters as part of
the menu item string but you could achieve this in two ways.
- In the open event of your windows that have menus you could alter the text attribute of
the help menu item.
m_mymenu.m_help.text = Char(8) + m_mymenu.m_help.text
- Another way would be to export the menu syntax and alter it manually but this option is
never a good idea as every time you edit the menu you would need to follow this procedure.
