Using Programming Languages other than VBA

Sub Example_AddSeparator()
	' This example creates a new menu called TestMenu and inserts a menu item
	' and a separator into it. The menu is then displayed on the menu bar.
	' To remove the menu after execution of this macro, use the Customize Menu
	' option from the Tools menu.

	Dim currMenuGroup As acadMenuGroup
	Set currMenuGroup = ThisDrawing.Application.MenuGroups.Item(0)

	' Create the new menu
	Dim newMenu As AcadPopupMenu
	Set newMenu = currMenuGroup.Menus.Add("TestMenu")

	' Add a menu item to the new menu
	Dim newMenuItem As AcadPopupMenuItem
	Dim openMacro As String

	' Assign the macro string the VB equivalent of "ESC ESC _open "
	openMacro = Chr(3) & Chr(3) & Chr(95) & "open" & Chr(32)

	Set newMenuItem = newMenu.AddMenuItem(newMenu.count + 1, "Open", openMacro)

	' Add a separator to the end of the menu
	Dim newMenuSeparator As AcadPopupMenuItem
	Set newMenuSeparator = newMenu.AddSeparator("")

	' Display the menu on the menu bar
	newMenu.InsertInMenuBar (ThisDrawing.Application.MenuBar.count + 1)
