    I have a simple question regarding adding sub menus to the menu bar. I can add sub menus easily with the following code:

        BaseContainer * conversionContainer = GetMenu("IDS_MENU_CONVERSION", meshContainer);
        if (!conversionContainer) {
            Error("Could not find IDS_MENU_CONVERSION!");
        BaseContainer newContainer;
        newContainer.InsData(MENURESOURCE_SUBTITLE, "Custom");
        newContainer.InsData(MENURESOURCE_COMMAND, "PLUGIN_CMD_" + String::IntToString(TCUSTOM_PLUGINID));
        conversionContainer->InsData(MENURESOURCE_STRING, newContainer);

    But how do I add a title to that command? I've been reading the description documentation, but its not clear for this case. Do I add it to a resource file? Are there any example resource files that match this case?

    Thanks in advanced.

    instead of:

    conversionContainer->InsData(MENURESOURCE_STRING, newContainer);
