Internationalizing menus using MFC support for Unicode

Environment: Windows 2000

This simple SDI Notepad-like application demonstrates how, taking advantage of the MFC support for Unicode, to Turkmenize labels of the specified menu items. Actually, Turkmen is not supported by Windows 2000, therefore, to create such resources as menu so that strings in Turkmen could be displayed I had to invent an additional technique.

void CMainFrame::ModifyMenu(CMenu* pMenu)
{
  UINT nPosition; 
  UINT nCount;
  CString string;

  nCount = pMenu->GetMenuItemCount();

  for (nPosition = 0; nPosition < nCount; nPosition++)
  {

    pMenu->GetMenuString(nPosition,string,MF_BYPOSITION);
    if(string.IsEmpty())
      continue;

    string.Replace(SMALL_X, Small_S_cedilla[0]);
    string.Replace(CAPITAL_X, Capital_S_cedilla[0]);
    string.Replace(SMALL_Q, Capital_N_caron[0]);
 
    pMenu->ModifyMenu(nPosition,MF_BYPOSITION|MF_STRING,
      pMenu->GetMenuItemID(nPosition),string);

    //recursive call
    if(pMenu->GetSubMenu(nPosition))
      ModifyMenu(pMenu->GetSubMenu(nPosition));
  }
}
