    <Result>: Integer
    Position of the option in the menu. If the option is not added, a fatal error occurs.
    <Source menu>: Menu name
    Name of the menu to which the menu option should be added. The option will be added after the last option in this menu.
    Remark: This name can correspond to a context menu.
    <Option to create>: Character string
    Name of the menu option to add. This name will be used to programmatically handle the menu option.
    If there is an option with the same name, a fatal error occurs.
    <Caption>: Character string
    Text of the new menu option. This text will be displayed in the window and will allow users to select the option.
    <WLanguage procedure>: Procedure name
    Name of the WLanguage procedure called when the menu option is selected.
    <Procedure parameter>: Optional variant

    WD LastDocuments Sample components (WINDEV): WD LastDocuments
    [ + ] This example explains how the list of last opened documents can be added to the application menu.
    This insertion is performed via a class proposed in the "LastDocuments" component.
    Four code lines are sufficient to insert the list of last opened documents into an existing application.
    These processes can be found in:
    - the declaration code of the global variables of the main window,
    - the code of the OpenDocument procedure,
    - the code of the menu options "File 1" to "File 10".
    The example has been simplified regarding the number of features (text files only) in order to highlight the use of the component.
