I am trying to figure out the best way of handling the Menu Bar in MacOS.
My Project is setup like this:
MainStack, does nothing has a couple of Global Cards that contain
info that the Substacks of the App can use. It also contains some
common functions that are held in the Stack Script. The window
associated with this Stack is hidden. So I thought that the best way
to handle the Menubar would be to include it in the (dummy) main
stack. I created a MenuBar ok and set the Use as MacOS Menu Bar flag.
I then put a menuPick handler on each button of the Menubar object.
However this only works if the top window is the mainStack (which is
never!). I guess that's what you'd expect! So now I would like to be
able to have the Menubar/Menu/Item handler in the (dummy) main stack
to be called regardless of which stack is actually be worked on my
Basically what I am asking is how do I share the menu bar with all
the other stacks (windows) in the App like a regular MacOS
Thanks in Advance for any Advice
