Name of the menu to add

Position of the existing menu before which to insert the new menu; the first menu is at position 0; if Position is 1, the new menu item is appended to the end of the menu

For consistency, SolidWorks suggests adding pull-down menus between the Tools and Window menu items in the SolidWorks menu bar.
