In a normal windows application, I've (context) menus. Many of the items have individual icons for better recognition. Now, some of the menu items are checkable. The "standard" way of showing the checked status of an item would be a check mark left of the item label - but there is the icon for the item.
What would the "windows" way to resolve this problem?
- A second column left of the icons to display potential check marks? (never seen this in an windows application)
- A change of the label adding an "(active)" to the label?
- A change of the icon itself to indicate the checked state?
