Hi Till,

A caution from the MetaCard User Guide, p 126: "The doMenu command is
provided for compatibility with HyperCard.  All of the functionality
accessable with the HyperCard doMenu command have equivalent commands in
MetaCard, therefore use of doMenu is discouraged."

As I have mentioned in a previous post, my stacks are button-driven, not
menu-driven; so I can't tell you what "equivalent" system message to trap.
My guess is menuPick.
