Setting MenuButton on openCard

I'm trying to use a menu button to display the name of the current card.
So, I have done the following:
1) the text of the button contains the names of all cards
2) the button is a group
3) In the script for the group is the following
set the menuHistory of button "menu" to the number of this card
However, when I either send openCard or navigate, nothing happens
visually, i.e. the option menu doesn't change its label, UNTIL I
manually change it once by clicking on it. Then it works as expected.
BEFORE manually changing it, the menuHistory and the label are what I
would expect them to be, but the display is improper.
XP/SP2, Studio 2.8.1.
