Trying to make Outlook-like buttons

I've been trying to make Outlook-like buttons, where
clicking on a button makes it do its default action,
but holding the mouse down displays a popup-menu to
choose from pre-defined actions.
Unfortunately, none of my attempts (on MacOS) seem to
work, as all menu-buttons display the menu right away,
and there's no way of setting up a delay there.
I also tried putting a narrow cascade menu over a
regular button (so you have a nice triangle on the
right), and set the regular button's script to
send "mouseDown" to btn "cascader"
But the menu refuses to display, even though the
mouseDown message _is_ sent.
Does anyone have an idea, short of mimicking the
popup-menu using a field ?
Thanks in advance,
