Hi John,

There's no need to feel embarassed : the list is here
because there are a lot of people more than happy to
help others out and answer their questions.
Remember, there are no stupid questions :)

Besides, there might be others who were about to ask
the same question. So don't be afraid to tells us what
you need to now, and we'll try and help you accomplish
your goal.

Now to get back to your question. What ought to be at
the same level needs to have the same number of
preceding tabs ; so try this :

set the text of btn "MyCascadingMenu" to \
    "A" & return & \
    tab & "A.1" & return & \
    tab & tab & "A.1.1" & return & \
    tab & tab & "A.1.2" & return & \
    tab & tab & "A.1.3" & return & \
    tab & "A.2" & return & \
    tab & tab & "A.2.1" & return & \
    tab & tab & "A.2.2" & return & \
    tab & tab & "A.2.3" & return & \
    "B" & return & \
    tab & "B.1" & return & \
    tab & tab & "B.1.1" & return & \
    tab & tab & "B.1.2" & return & \
    tab & tab & "B.1.3" & return & \
    tab & "B.2" & return & \
    tab & tab & "B.2.1" & return & \
    tab & tab & "B.2.2" & return & \
    tab & tab & "B.2.3" & return

Hope this clarified menu buttons a bit,

Jan Schenkel.
