     I decided that after not being able to find any good examples of how to handle a recent files list as in Winzip or MS-Word, that I would make my own one... This example shows how to store a list of recently opened or saved files in the windows registry for later retrieval, it also manages which was used last and also checks that the file always exists. The code for populating the menus and the menus onclick event is also handled.

Note: Due to the size or complexity of this submission, the author has submitted it as a .zip file to shorten your download time. Afterdownloading it, you will need a program like Winzip to decompress it.Virus note:All files are scanned once-a-day by Planet Source Code for viruses, but new viruses come out every day, so no prevention program can catch 100% of them. For your own safety, please:
  1. Re-scan downloaded files using your personal virus checker before using it.
  2. NEVER, EVER run compiled files (.exe's, .ocx's, .dll's etc.)--only run source code.

If you don't have a virus scanner, you can get one at many places on the net including:McAfee.com
