This class is used for a variety of menu-related events. Note that these do not include menu command events, which are handled using wxCommandEvent objects.
The default handler for wxEVT_MENU_HIGHLIGHT displays help text in the first field of the status bar.
Event table macros
To process a menu event, use these event handler macros to direct input to member functions that take a wxMenuEvent argument. They can only be processed by a menubar's frame.
|EVT_MENU_OPEN(func)||A menu is about to be opened. On Windows, this is only sent once for each navigation of the menubar (up until all menus have closed).|
|EVT_MENU_CLOSE(func)||A menu has been just closed.|
|EVT_MENU_HIGHLIGHT(id, func)||The menu item with the specified id has been highlighted: used to show help prompts in the status bar by wxFrame|
|EVT_MENU_HIGHLIGHT_ALL(func)||A menu item has been highlighted, i.e. the currently selected menu item has changed.|
