Thank you once more Bruce, your work around is very interesting. I had the
same idea but did not succeed in implementing it.
The problem is that my menu is a sub-submenu, and it is attached to a tray
icon. I was not able to make your example work in these conditions. As I
said earlier, the Hide event is not triggered.

I even tried embedding a Listbox/Listview control in a submenu, but - since
the Menu object is not a container - it is not possible.

I'll try to come up with a different UI for the program, one that will not
disorient my old users too much.

However, I have a proposal for Benoit: when a menu is created with all
children of type Toggle, and all toggles are joined into one (or more)
control group(s), do not close the menu upon clicking on a toggle. Do you
think it may be a sensible choice? In this case the menu should be closed
by clicking elsewhere or pressing ESC.
