I have a CMenu with horizontal written, if I press on a horizontal written, submenu compares and I can add event handler..but if I want to add event handler directly on horizontal written?

Most likely because the topmost item is not an actual MenuItem but a title for the collection in the submenu.

aaa ok, if I want this effect I must use buttons..a question..Can I make a derived class of CMenu? Because when I press add mfc class on my application and search CMenu in baseClass I don't find it

You need more than just the resource ID. There is more to do.
Define a member function
CMenu m_mnYourMenu;

As part of initilizing your dialog, you need to load this menu.
// load menu

Then you add an event and a callback for that event. If you share more details and more code, we can help more.
