The menu is created by code placed in a event at the form or page level.
To find code at the page level, right-click on the page of your form (while
in design mode of course,) and select "Object Inspector" . When the object
explorer is open, make sure the tab titled "Events" is on the top. The
menu-creating code may well be attached to one of the page events. If you
see a little round marker next to the "Arrive" event or the "Open" event,
double-click on the event to open it.
If you don't find anything that looks like menu building code there, close
the object inspector. Select Tools|Object Explorer and select the "form"
object there. Check out the same forms events as I mentioned for the page.
The key to remember is that some event must occur to cause the program to
build your menu. An event that would occur early in the execution of a
form, such as arrive or open, is a good place to place the code. If the
form has only one page, the page is a better place to put your code.
Spend some time right-clicking on objects to get familiar with what events
they respond to.
