Hi Ralph,

You can change a menu button's items by means of the
'text' property ; this expects a return-delimited list
of menu items ; example :
  set the text of button "MyMenuButton" to \
      "Smith" & return & "Jones" & return & \
      "Brown" & return & "White"

Hope this helped,

Jan Schenkel.
