GetMenuCheckMarkDimensions function (winuser.h)

Retrieves the dimensions of the default check-mark bitmap. The system displays this bitmap next to selected menu items. Before calling the SetMenuItemBitmaps function to replace the default check-mark bitmap for a menu item, an application must determine the correct bitmap size by calling GetMenuCheckMarkDimensions.

Note  The GetMenuCheckMarkDimensions function is included only for compatibility with 16-bit versions of Windows. Applications should use the GetSystemMetrics function with the CXMENUCHECK and CYMENUCHECK values to retrieve the bitmap dimensions.
