Using MouseUp Instead Of MenuPick
mouseUphandler in the menu button instead of a menuPick. It has to get
the selectedTextinstead of having it as a parameter, but apart from that it works identically but doesn't get triggered when you
set the menuHistory.
Suppose this is an option button and it contains the values "Apple","Orange", and "Lemon". If you then want to initialize the menu to show "Orange" on the button and set it so that "Orange" appears under the mouse when you pop it up, you would do:on menuPick pChoice answer "The selection was:" && pChoice end menuPick on mouseUp put the selectedText of me into pChoice answer "The selection was:" && pChoice end menuPick
If the button contained theset the menuHistory of btn 1 to 2
menuPickhandler, you'd get the answer dialog appearing after it set the button. However if the button contained only the
mouseUphandler, no dialog would be displayed.
