Extending the Outlook Menu Bar Commandbar

I would like to extend the Outlook Menu Bar. I thought I had to create a adxCommandBar and name it "Menu Bar" (which actually works). But when I add a CommandBarPopUp named "E&xtras" (since I want to add a Menu Button to the extras menu) I get another root menu entry 'Extras' with my controls within.

How can I implement additional controls in the default outlook Menu Bar menus?

Kind regards,

Hi Thomas.

When you add a built-in popup control to the ADXCommandbar component (which is a built-in menu) you need to set the Id property of this popup control to an appropriate value.
To get the ID you can use our Built-in Controls Scanner:
