xcall MB_TEXT(control, text[, justification])



The menu control structure. (a)


The text to add to the column. (a)


(optional) One of the following justification flags: (n)

0 = Left‑justified beneath heading. (default)

1 = Right‑justified beneath heading.

2 = Centered beneath heading.


MB_TEXT adds a row of text to a new column. This subroutine is used when building a new menu column at runtime.

The added text is not a menu entry; it’s just a comment displayed in the menu column. On Windows, text in a menu column can be highlighted, but the user will not be able to select it.

If justification is present and has a value of 1, text will be right‑justified within the row. If justification has a value of 2, text will be centered in the row.
