If I choose to create a menu item in code
dim t as new menuitem
t.text = "Choices"
and then I add child menus
dim m as new menuitem
m.text = "Choice 1"
When I display the menu as a popup
n = t.popup
The menu that is displayed is a text -less menu item with the disclosure arrow on the right. (click the arrow and “Choice 1” appears)
The word “Choices” does not appear
Is there any way to fix that?
Don’t get a blank menuitem here; instead I only see “Choice 1”.
But this code gives me what I think you’re looking for.
[code]Dim base as new menuitem
Dim m as new menuitem( “Choices” )
m.append new menuitem( “Choice 1” )
m.append new menuitem( “Choice 2” )
m.append new menuitem( “Choice 3” )
m = base.popUp[/code]
Here’s how I would actually do something similar
[code]Dim m as new menuitem( “Choices” )
Dim options() as pair = array( “Choice 1” : 1, “Choice 2” : 2, “Choice 3” : 3 )
For each p as pair in options
m.append new menuitem( p.left, p.right )
Dim base as new menuitem
m = base.popUp
if m = nil then return
That works… thank you.
My problem was I was changing the text of my ‘base’ instead of my ‘m’
